D. The Vibronic-Coupling Model Hamiltonian IV, Non-Adiabatic Molecular Dynamics [Pg.250]

A further model Hamiltonian that is tailored for the treatment of non-adiabatic systems is the vibronic coupling (VC) model of Koppel et al. [65]. This provides an analytic expression for PES coupled by non-adiabatic effects, which can be fitted to ab initio calculations using only a few data points. As a result, it is a useful tool in the description of photochemical systems. It is also very useful in the development of dynamics methods, as it provides realistic global surfaces that can be used both for exact quantum wavepacket dynamics and more approximate methods. [Pg.255]

To demonstrate the basic ideas of molecular dynamics calculations, we shall first examine its application to adiabatic systems. The theory of vibronic coupling and non-adiabatic effects will then be discussed to define the sorts of processes in which we are interested. The complications added to dynamics calculations by these effects will then be considered. Some details of the mathematical formalism are included in appendices. Finally, examples will be given of direct dynamics studies that show how well the systems of interest can at present be treated. [Pg.256]

A different example of non-adiabatic effects is found in the absorption spectrum of pyrazine [171,172]. In this spectrum, the, Si state is a weak structured band, whereas the S2 state is an intense broad, fairly featureless band. Importantly, the fluorescence lifetime is seen fo dramatically decrease in fhe energy region of the 82 band. There is thus an efficient nonradiative relaxation path from this state, which results in the broad spectrum. Again, this is due to vibronic coupling between the two states [109,173,174]. [Pg.276]

The adiabatic picture is the standard one in quantum chemistry for the reason that, not only is it mathematically well defined, but it is also that used in ab initio calculations, which solve the electronic Hamiltonian at a particular nuclear geometry. To see the effects of vibronic coupling on the potential energy surfaces one must move to what is called a diabatic representation [1,65,180, 181]. [Pg.279]

A B2u- The vibronic coupling model Hamiltonian is set up using the ground-state [Pg.286]

The vibronic coupling model has been applied to a number of molecular systems, and used to evaluate the behavior of wavepackets over coupled surfaces [191]. Recent examples are the radical cation of allene [192,193], and benzene [194] (for further examples see references cited therein). It has also been used to explain the lack of structure in the S2 band of the pyrazine absoiption spectrum [109,173,174,195], and recently to study the photoisomerization of retina] [196], [Pg.288]

The cyclopentadienyl radical and the cyclopentadienyl cation are two well-known Jahn-Teller problems The traditional Jahn-Teller heatment starts at the D k symmetry, and looks for the normal modes that reduce the symmetry by first-01 second-order vibronic coupling. A Longuet-Higgins treatment will search for anchors that may be used to form the proper loop. The coordinates relevant to this approach are reaction coordinates. [Pg.358]

Vibronic Coupling in Singlet States of Linear Molecules [Pg.475]

Introduction of the vibronic coupling (s / 0) causes removal of the above degeneracy and leads to the general vibronic-spin-orbit pattern presented in the central part of Figure 3. Each vibronic level is characterized by a particular K [Pg.493]

For vei y small vibronic coupling, the quadratic terms in the power series expansion of the electronic Hamiltonian in normal coordinates (see Appendix E) may be considered to be negligible, and hence the potential energy surface has rotational symmetry but shows no separate minima at the bottom of the moat. In this case, the pair of vibronic levels Aj and A2 in < 3 become degenerate by accident, and the D3/, quantum numbers (vi,V2,/2) may be used to label the vibronic levels of the X3 molecule.
