Abstract: We use the Kramers-Heisenberg approach to derive a general expression for the resonant Raman scattering cross section from a one-dimensional 011D02 system explicitly accounting for excitonic effects. The result should prove useful for analyzing the Raman resonance excitation profile line shapes for a variety of 1D systems including carbon nanotubes and semiconductor quantum wires. We apply this formalism to a simple 1D model system to illustrate the similarities and differences between the free electron and correlated electron-hole theories.
