All molecules in a magnetic field parallel to the incident light beam show a small difference in the intensity of Raman scattering at 900 in right and left circularly polarized incident light. The most interesting effects occur in vibrational resonance Raman scattering from odd—electron transition metal halides, and in pure electronic resonance Raman scattering from both odd— and even—electron molecules. These effects originate in Raman transitions between components of Zeeman—split degenerate levels, and provide information about the magnetic structure of the ground and low— lying excited levels (in particular the sign of the g—value and the ordering of magnetic sub—states).
