The theory of frame transformation relation connecting body oriented angular momentum states and lab weakly coupled momentum states have been extended from rotor-electron to rotor-dimer systems. Coupling schemes are analyzed for weak and strong cases of correlation between lab and two different rotor body frames. It is shown that the frame transformation(More)
The migration of individual Ga atoms on the technologically important GaAs~001!-(234) reconstructed surface has been studied as a function of substrate temperature and As4 pressure using a combined molecular beam epitaxy and scanning tunneling microscope ultrahigh vacuum multichamber facility. We have deposited 10% of a plane of Ga onto a GaAs~001! surface(More)
The theory of Frame transformation relations between the states of Born Oppenheimer and the weak coupling approximations is developed for polyatomic molecules. The symmetry relations are a generalization of the frame transformation relations derived by Harter and Crogman for coupled rotor molecules. A key internal symmetry label (named “soul”) is defined so(More)
Spectra of high-symmetry molecules contain fine and superfine level cluster structure related to J-tunneling between hills and valleys on rovibronic energy surfaces (RES). Such graphic visualizations help disentangle multi-level dynamics, selection rules, and state mixing effects including widespread violation of nuclear spin symmetry species. A review of(More)
Some implications of tumbling quartets, triplets, and doublets seen in high-resolution spherical-top spectra are discussed. Some of the first observed cluster splittings are shown in SiF(4) spectra and compared with the predictions of the quantum theory of clusters. Further potentially interesting spectroscopic experiments are proposed.
In a previous article the theory of frame transformation relation between Body Oriented Angular (BOA) states and Lab Weakly Coupled states (LWC) was developed to investigate simple rotor-rotor interactions. By analyzing the quantum spectrum for two coupled diatomic molecules and comparing it with spectrum and probability distribution of simple models,(More)
