Re^2: Is Raman spectrum calculation highly computationally intensive?

Dear Thomas,
Thank you for the valuable information that "Raman calculations can give better results when diffuse functions are used". Yes I agree about 18+1 gradient calculations needed.
However about the diffuse functions use for raman, shouldn't we use the same SET for both preceding and raman calculations? This question was asked to me too.

Regards,
