We report a high-resolution resonance Raman study of C 60 films. We identify several peaks whose frequencies are in good agreement with the predictions of a first-principles quantum molecular dynamics calculation for an isolated C 60 molecule having icosahedral symmetry. On the other hand, the depolarization ratios for most Raman peaks, some fine-structure features observed with high resolution, and the resonance photon energies suggest solid-state effects or the existence of C 60 isomers of lower symmetry.
