A theory of hyper−Raman scattering by optically active molecules is presented. It is shown that scattering intensities depend on the helicity of the incident light: Expressions for the differential scattering intensities are derived taking into account electric dipole and quadrupole and magnetic dipole interactions. A helical box model is used to estimate circular differential scattering intensity ratios and depolarization ratios.
