Charge Transfer Spectra
Charge transfer spectra in highly ionic crystals correspond to electron transfer between neighboring atoms. They can be classified as donor or acceptor, depending upon whether the metal atom donates or accepts an electron. The essential differences between these two kinds of transitions are emphasized, and a simple criterion to establish which type is responsible for observed spectra are stated. The relationship of optical and chemical charge transfer processes are examined. The theories used to explain and correlate charge transfer spectra are finally discussed.
