In both spontaneous Raman and hyper-Raman scattering from isotropic systems, scattering due to one of the spherical tensor invariants cannot be eliminated. It is shown that these invariants can be eliminated through use of an appropriate experimental geometry in coherent Raman and hyper-Raman scattering. Applications of this technique are presented.
