Electronic Transitions and Relaxation Phenomena in Polarons

  • J. Devreese
  • R. Evrard
  • E. Kartheuser
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (volume 2)

Abstract

This is a series of four lectures concerning the excitation spectrum of polarons. The polaron model serves here to illustrate the effects of the interaction between elementary excitations. In the first lecture the Hamiltonian describing the polaron is derived.

Keywords

Optical Absorption Electronic Transition Path Integral Relaxation Phenomenon Weak Coupling Limit 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
