State-of-the-art ab initio techniques have been applied to compute the potential energy curves for the electronic states in the A(1)Σ(u)(+), c(3)Π(u), and a(3)Σ(u)(+) manifold of the strontium dimer, the spin-orbit and nonadiabatic coupling matrix elements between the states in the manifold, and the electric transition dipole moment from the ground X(1)Σ(g)(+) to the nonrelativistic and relativistic states in the A+c+a manifold. The potential energy curves and transition moments were obtained… 
Interatomic potentials, electric properties and spectroscopy of the ground and excited states of the Rb2 molecule: ab initio calculations and effect of a non-resonant field*
We formulate the theory for a diatomic molecule in a spatially degenerate electronic state interacting with a non-resonant laser field and investigate its rovibrational structure in the presence of
Ground State Properties of the Polar Alkali-Metal-Ytterbium and Alkaline-Earth-Metal-Ytterbium Molecules: A Comparative Study.
The results demonstrate that the dissociation energies and PDMs of AEM-yb are smaller than those of AM-Yb molecules, and an interesting trend of the dissociative energy has been observed.
Transition moments between excited electronic states from the Hermitian formulation of the coupled cluster quadratic response function.
As a part of the numerical evidence for the new method, calculations of the transition moments between the excited triplet states which have not yet been reported in the literature within the coupled cluster theory are reported.

We investigate two-frequency photoassociation of a weakly bound molecular state, focusing on a regime where the ac Stark shift is comparable to the halo-state energy. In this "high-intensity" regime,
