Abstract

Luminescence is an efficient tool for studying electronic spectra. Since the luminescence intensity is determined both by the density of electrons and the transition probabilities, and by the population of these states, luminescence can, in many cases, be used to advantage in investigating the fine structure of spectra, which does not show up in absorption, and provides the possibility to study the kinetics of population and depletion of these states. By studying the luminescence for different populations of the electronic states, one can determine the effect of electron-electron interaction on electronic spectra.
