Quantum effects in large molecule collisional energy transfer ?


Recently, Gilbert and Zare proposed that dynamical quantum effects might explain the poor performance ofclassical trajectory calculations in simulating the vibrational deactivation of excited azulene by the lighter noble gases. They proposed an experimental test: a comparison of 3He and 4He deactivation of azulene. In this Letter, the collisional… (More)
