...Diatomic Molecules provides a systematic approach to quantitative analysis of molecular spectra of diatomic molecules, in particular infrared and Raman spectra. This analysis is used to extract precise information about not only molecular structure but also its associated electric and magnetic properties.
This book is unique in its methodical treatment of the subject, and in the included collection of results and extensive bibliography. The first three chapters provide a thorough explanation of an empirical basis of infrared and Raman spectra, together with the theory behind techniques employed in their analysis.
Succeeding chapters outline, among other topics, wave functions and matrix elements in relation to radial functions for potential energy, dipolar moment etc., and applications of lasers. Various methods are applied in analysis of frequency data and spectral intensities, and to effects of spin and intermolecular interaction. The many subjects are discussed in depth, with reviews of topics important in future progress of experiment and theory in molecular spectroscopy.
Senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in chemistry and physics will find ..Diatomic Molecules a useful adjunct to their course texts, and it will prove invaluable to all researchers in spectroscopy.
Dr. Ogilvie was formerly a research fellow of Emmanuel College in Cambridge, UK, and has since been a professor of chemistry and physics on all six continents. He is based at present at Simon Fraser University, Canada.
