Abstract

A general expression that involves only the ranks of the molecular polarizabilties of the two molecules involved in a pair interaction yielding translational and rotational collision-induced light scattering (CILS) is obtained. It may be used to investigate the behaviour of individual interactions that contribute to the incremental collision-induced pair polarizability. Copyright © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
