Light absorption during alkali atom-noble gas atom interactions at thermal energies: a quantum dynamics treatment.

Abstract

The absorption of light during atomic collisions is treated by coupling electronic excitations, treated quantum mechanically, to the motion of the nuclei described within a short de Broglie wavelength approximation, using a density matrix approach. The time-dependent electric dipole of the system provides the intensity of light absorption in a treatment… (More)
