Frame transformation relations for fluxional symmetric rotor dimers.


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 relation is a purely quantum effect at low angular momentum but an approach to a classical limit for high J. Symmetry analysis of frame transformation is compared to eigensolutions of model coupling Hamiltonian.
