We present a detailed experimental and theoretical study of the (Formula presented)(2) Raman spectrum of pure and isotopically mixed C(Formula presented) molecules. The spectrum shows a striking correlation with the mass spectrum of the molecule, consistent with a simple nondegenerate perturbation analysis. Comparisons with nonperturbative calculations using several first-principles and phenomenological dynamical models show that the study of this phenomenon can provide a stringent test of vibrational models for C(Formula presented).
