Non-Adiabatic Molecular Collisions

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 196)

Abstract

Non-reactive atom-molecule (A + BC) collisions in the 1–1000 eV/amu energy range are investigated. The collision is treated in terms of the molecular states of the ABC system and the conditions determining electronically non-adiabatic transitions are considered. The basic quantum mechanical equations that govern the scattering amplitudes for ro-vibronic transitions are reviewed. An outline is given of the theory and practice of adiabatic and diabatic representations. A semi-classical treatment is introduced which lends itself to the application of sudden approximations for rotation and (at high energy) vibration. Recently studied non-adiabatic molecular collisions are discussed.
