Linear Molecular Spectroscopy

  • Zu-Geng Wang
  • Hui-Rong Xia
Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 50)


On the basis of the energy-level discussion of Chap.2 we summarize here the various kinds of molecular spectra due to linear interactions of molecules with laser fields. For a detailed analysis of molecular-spectra regularities the reader is referred to [3.1–4].
