The power , scattered from the illuminated volume V in a solid angle , where and are measured inside the sample, is given by where is the incident light intensity inside the material, is the appropriate elastic constant for the observed phonon, and the factor results from taking the fluctuation–dissipation theorem in the classical limit for (Hayes & Loudon, 1978). The coupling coefficient M is given by In practice, the incident intensity is defined outside the scattering volume, , and for normal incidence one can write Similarly, the scattered power is observed outside as , and again for normal incidence. Finally, the approximative relation between the scattering solid angle , outside the sample, and the solid angle , in the sample, is Substituting (2.4.4.9a,b,c) in (2.4.4.7), one obtains (Vacher & Boyer, 1972) where the coupling coefficient is In the cases of interest here, the tensor is diagonal, without summation on i, and (2.4.4.11) can be written in the simpler form
