Electronic and Vibrational Energy Transfer

  • B. A. Thrush
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 12)


Most of the information currently available as to the properties and mechanism of energy transfer processes involving small molecules has come from the study of electronic and vibrational relaxation processes. The general properties and kinetics of these processes of energy redistribution are discussed in terms of the mechanisms of energy transfer.
