**Spontaneous and stimulated transitions**

Stimulated emission: emission which is induced by a resonant perturbing electromagnetic field Spontaneous emission: emission which occurs even in the absence of a perturbing external electromagnetic field Einstein coefficients Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat

**Transition dipole moment and oscillator strength**

For transition from state 1 to state 2, the transition dipole moment is M is the dipole moment operator, and are the wave-functions of states 1 and 2. Einstein coefficient and transition dipole moment Oscillator strength n is the frequency in s-1 is the molar extinction coefficient in M-1 cm-1 Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat

4
**Potential energy curve**

A curve describing the variation of the potential energy of the system of atoms that make up the reactants and products of a reaction as a function of one geometric coordinate, and corresponding to the energetically easiest passage from reactants to products. The very notion of potential energy curve implies the adiabatic (Born-Oppenheimer) approximation whereby electronic and nuclear motions are treated separately Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat

5
**Reaction coordinate, potential energy surface**

Reaction coordinate: A geometric parameter that changes during the conversion of one (or more) reactant molecular entities into one (or more) product molecular entities and whose value can be taken for a measure of the progress of an elementary reaction (for example, a bond length or bond angle or a combination of bond lengths and/or bond angles; it is sometimes approximated by a non-geometric parameter, such as the bond order of some specified bond). Potential energy surface: A geometric hypersurface on which the potential energy of a set of reactants is plotted as a function of the coordinates representing the molecular geometries of the system.

6
**Franck-Condon principle and reaction rate**

Because the nuclei are so much more massive than the electrons, an electronic transition takes place very much faster than the nuclei can respond Reaction rate and – electronic wave-functions of reactant and product – electronic Hamiltonian operator and – nuclear (vibrational) wave-functions of reactant and product – Franck-Condon factor Corso CFMA.

**Diabatic and adiabatic photoreactions**

Diabatic photoreaction: Within the Born Oppenheimer approximation, a reaction beginning on one excited state potential-energy surface and ending, as a result of radiationless transition, on another surface, usually that of the ground state. Also called non-adiabatic. Adiabatic photoreaction: Within the Born Oppenheimer approximation, a reaction of an excited state species that occurs on a single potential-energy surface.

**Homogeneous and inhomogeneous broadening**

the same transition energy (n0) for all molecules the same line-shape (A(n)) for all molecules Inhomogeneous broadening Some distribution of transition energies (n0) around average value ( ) The total line shape is a superposition of individual molecule line-shapes Homogeneous broadening mechanisms: motion (Doppler effect) collisions interaction with environment temperature ...
