We develop an analytic model of thermal state-to-state rotationally inelastic collisions of asymmetric-top molecules with closed-shell atoms in electric fields and apply it to the Ar-H(2)O collision system. The predicted cross sections as well as the steric asymmetry of the collisions show at fields up to 150 kV/cm characteristic field-dependent features which can be experimentally tested. Particularly suitable candidates for such tests are the 0(00) --> 2(20) and 1(01) --> 2(21) channels…

An analytic model of the stereodynamics of rotationally inelastic molecular collisions.

An analytic model of vector correlations in rotationally inelastic atom-diatom collisions and test it against the much examined Ar-NO (X(2)Pi) system reveals that the stereodynamics is governed by diffraction from the repulsive core of the Ar- NO potential, which can be characterized by a single Legendre moment.

Quantum control of molecular rotation

The angular momentum of molecules, or, equivalently, their rotation in three-dimensional space, is ideally suited for quantum control. Molecular angular momentum is naturally quantized, time

Manipulation of molecules with electromagnetic fields

The goal of the present article is to review the major developments that have led to the current understanding of molecule–field interactions and experimental methods for manipulating molecules with

Communications: When diffraction rules the stereodynamics of rotationally inelastic collisions.

The model polarization moments characterizing the He-NO, He-O(2), He-OH, and He-CaH stereodynamics are found to coalesce into a single, distinctive pattern, which can serve as a "fingerprint" to identify diffraction-driven stereodynamics in future work.

Quantum Theory of Angular Momentum

This chapter affords a brief summary of the quantum theory of angular momentum. As the angular momentum of a charged particle is proportional to its magnetization, this subject is at the core of the
