Description

Excited States, Volume 3 deals with excited states and covers topics ranging from two-photon molecular spectroscopy in liquids and gases to time evolution of excited molecular states. Product energy distributions in the dissociation of polyatomic molecules are also discussed, along with the mechanism of optical nuclear polarization in molecular crystals and vibronic interactions and luminescence in aromatic molecules with non-bonding electrons.

Comprised of five chapters, this volume begins with a didactic treatment of the theory of simultaneous two-photon absorption spectroscopy from the point of view concerned primarily with molecular gases and liquids. The basic theoretical quantity is shown to be an absorption tensor, as contrasted with the absorption vector of one-photon spectroscopy. The next chapter considers the time evolution of a molecular system interacting with a photon wave packet. The theory is applied to handle photon scattering from several physical models for molecular level structure in excited electronic states of polyatomic molecules. The remaining chapters explore various polyatomic decomposition processes and the basic features governing the internal energy distribution of the fragments; optical nuclear polarization in molecular crystals and vibronic interactions; and luminescence in aromatic molecules with non-bonding electrons.

This book should be of interest to chemists and molecular physicists.
