Effects of vibronic coherence transfer induced by the heat bath on ultrafast time-resolved resonant light scattering (RLS) spectra are theoretically investigated within the master equation approach. The vibronic coherence initially created by a coherent optical excitation transfers to other vibronic coherent states due to inelastic interactions between the vibronic system concerned (the relevant system) and the heat bath. The vibronic coherence transfer results in the quantum beats in the time-resolved RLS spectra. The bath-induced vibronic transition operator is derived in the double space representation of the density matrix theory. Model calculations of the femtosecond (fs) time-resolved RLS spectra are performed to demonstrate the effects of the bath-induced vibronic coherence transfer.
