- The laser Raman scattering analysis of combustion flames requires a knowledge of the scattering cross sections for a variety of molecular species. Since cross sections are known for only the most common and most stable of molecules (e.g., N/sub 2/, O/sub 2/ and H/sub 2/), a program to calculate cross sections for other molecules of interest to combustion analysis has been initiated. In this paper theoretically-determined cross sections for H/sub 2/, N/sub 2/, OH, LiH, and O/sub 2/ are presented. Comparison with the few experimentally determined cross sections indicates that the theoretical approach is a reliable method for determining Raman scattering cross sections for those molecules whose cross sections cannot be readily determined experimentally.
