We review our recent achievements in developing quantum chemistry tools for simulating and interpreting vibrational spectra. These encompass the hyper-Raman scattering technique, the resonance Raman spectroscopy, and the vibrational Raman optical activity spectroscopy. These techniques distinguish from the more usual and widely-spread IR absorption and Raman scattering techniques by their nonlinear (hyper-Raman), resonant (resonance Raman), and optical activity (vibrational Raman optical Activity) characteristics. Applications range from model systems to the investigation of solvent effects and of π-conjugated species.
