We present our novel approach for computing resonance Raman (RR) spectra of periodic bulk phase systems from ab initio molecular dynamics, including solvent influence and some anharmonic effects. Based on real-time time-dependent density functional theory, we obtain the RR spectra for all laser wavelengths in one pass. We compute the RR spectrum of uracil in aqueous solution, which is in good agreement with experiment. This is the first simulation of a bulk phase RR spectrum.
