    ABSTRACT: Resonance Raman spectroscopy is an established tool for the determination of structure and dynamics in electronically excited states. In condensed-phase systems, Raman excitation profiles and electronic absorption spectra depend on changes in molecular geometry and solvation structure induced by electronic excitation. Recent studies of solvent isotope effects on resonance Raman intensities in charge-transfer excitations reveal solvent dynamics taking place on a subpicosecond time scale and vibrational mode-specific solute-solvent interactions. These discoveries present challenges to the current working theories for analysis of resonance Raman and absorption spectra.
