Spectra of Atoms and Molecules – Peter F. Bernath – Google Books

Bernath’s clear treatment of the confusing topic of line strengths as needed for quantitative applications is featured. This book is not a monograph on spectroscopy, but it can be profitably read by physicists, chemists, astronomers, and engineers who need to become acquainted with the subject.

Spectra of Atoms and Molecules Peter F. I have tried to take particular care to address the elementary aspects of spectroscopy that students have found to be most confusing.

Physics of Atoms and Ions Boris M.

Molecular symmetry, matrix representation of groups, quantum mechanics, and group theory are among the topics covered; atomic, rotational, berhath, electronic and Raman spectra are analyzed. A certain amount of new material has been added based on my recent experiences with what is misleadingly called “quantitative spectroscopy.

Spectra of Atoms and Molecules

Excellent book of molecular spectroscopy! Considerable detail is provided on the origin of spectro- scopic principles. This book reviews the basic skills needed to understand the material, including a clear Elementary Scattering Theory D. It emphasizes the fundamental principles of spectroscopy with its primary goal being to teach students how to interpret spectra.

This new edition has been updated to include the CODATA revision of physical constants, and a large number of corrections and clarifications. The figures for the second edition have been prepared by S.

Rather than focus on the latest methods of recording spectra which will be out of fashion tomorrowI concentrate on the interpretation of the spectra. Features include a presentation of group theory needed to understand spectroscopy, detailed worked examples and a large number of excellent problems at the end of each chapter. And if you are first to this field, you will find it is like an experienced lecturer’s notes on spectroscopy and probably the best one.

Undergraduate seniors and first-year graduate students studying molecular spectroscopy will find this text indispensable. Some of the problems seem to originate from the degeneracies inherent in atomic and molecular systems. One of the goals of this book is to introduce the language of spectroscopy to the new student of the subject. Line intensities are also confusing because of the dozens of different units used to report line and band strengths.


Spectra of Atoms and Molecules is a very thorough and pedagogically organized textbook. Account Options Sign in.

Modern spectroscopy is based on the matrix approach to quantum mechanics. The usual intensity formulas are derived as in Chapter 1 for transitions between nondegenerate quantum states, while measurements are generally made on transitions between degenerate energy levels.

It will also be of interest to professionals in chemistry, physics, astronomy, and engineering. I also thank my fall graduate class in molecular spectroscopy vii Vlll M.

Real spectroscopic lf can be solved on the computer more easily if they are formulated in terms of matrix operations rather than differential equations. Even the definition of what constitutes a line can be a source of difficulties.
