Optical Properties of Molecular Crystals

Abstract

A measurement of the optical properties of electronic systems is usually the best way to obtain information about energy levels. This is particularly true for molecules, since the excitation energies of the molecule are in the range of frequency suitable for optical measurement. There are, of course, many types of optical measurements: one and two photon absorption,1 reflection, and Raman scattering, to just name some common methods. All of these provide different types of information. These lectures will not be concerned with the different experimental methods. Instead, we will be mainly concerned with the general dielectric properties, which can be measured a number of ways.
