34 Full Vibrational Stick Spectra Strongest absorption on bend – difficult to distinguish from monomer features More structure between cm -1

35 Model for high frequency absorption Approximate separation between monomer and dimer modes Franck-Condon approximation for vibrational fine structure Rotational band model – Matt will discuss this

36 We have a new model to probe near IR and visible regions of the water dimer spectra. –With first vibrational fine structure reported. Spectra for up to 10,000 cm -1 produced. –Much better agreement with experimental and theoretical work than our previous calculations. We have finished new averaging calculations which will allow us to probe spectra up to 18,000 cm -1 And all states up to dissociation to be calculated. –Only 8 states per symmetry here (32 states per state-state job) –up to 800, or 3200 per job.
