Calculations of the IR and Raman spectra of molecules containing linear carbon segments are reported. H-C 2n -H (n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and H 2 -C 2n -H 2 (n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) were choosen to model the alternating and the cumulenic structures, respectively. Geometry optimization and force constant calculation were done on the ab initio Hartree-Fock level using Dunning's double-ζ basis set with polarization. The frequencies were scaled by Pulay's method. IR- and Raman-intensities were obtained by calculating dipole- and polarizability derivatives, respectively.
