    Résumé

    The experimental Raman spectra of graphene exhibit a few intense two-phonon bands, which are enhanced through double-resonant scattering processes. Though there are many theoretical papers on
    this topic, none of them predicts the spectra within a single model. Here, we present results for the two-phonon Raman spectra of graphene calculated by means of the quantum-mechanical perturbation theory.
    The electronic and phonon dispersions, electronic lifetime, electron-photon and electron-phonon matrix elements, are all obtained within a density-functional-theory-based non-orthogonal tight-binding model.
    We study systematically the overtone and combination two-phonon Raman bands, and, in particular, the energy and polarization dependence of their Raman shift and intensity. We find that the ratio of the integrated intensities for parallel and cross polarized light for all two-phonon bands is between 0.33 and 0.42. Our results are in good agreement with the available experimental data.
