Contents:
Cover; Half-title; Title; Copyright; Contents; Preface; Acknowledgments; Principal symbols; 1 Radiation field; 2 Quantum mechanics; 3 Interaction of radiation with matter; 4 Electronic vs. nuclear motions and the optical spectra of localized electrons in solids; 5 Lattice vibrations; 6 Electric susceptibility and dielectric constant; 7 One-electron states in solids; 8 Excitons; 9 Polaron and the self-trapped state; 10 Optical spectra of exciton in the phonon field; 11 Higher-order optical processes; 12 Inner-shell excitation; 13 Photo-induced structural changes; 14 Light, matter and life.
Summary: Light (electromagnetic radiation) is the most powerful tool for probing the quantum mechanical motions of electrons and nuclei within molecules and condensed matter. In this book the author describes the principles of such spectroscopic study with the help of illustrative comparison between theory and experimental studies.
