Quantum and classical approaches for rotational relaxation and nonresonant laser alignment of linear molecules: a comparison for CO2 gas in the nonadiabatic regime.


A quantum approach and classical molecular dynamics simulations (CMDS) are proposed for the modeling of rotational relaxation and of the nonadiabatic alignment of gaseous linear molecules by a nonresonant laser field under dissipative conditions. They are applied to pure CO(2) and compared by looking at state-to-state collisional rates and at the value of… (More)
