Synchrotron Radiation and Laser Excitation Sources for Studies of Intramolecular Dynamics

  • Sydney Leach
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 105)


Ideal source requirements for selective excitation studies of intramolecular dynamics are discussed. The properties of synchrotron radiation are presented and are shown to be useful for such studies. A comparison is made between VUV laser and SR sources and their complementary nature for studies in the high energy region is shown.
