About the Authors
  • Diatomic molecules are important to the physical sciences because they are the basic building blocks of large molecules. Many of the principles which underly our understanding of chemical bonds in molecules were first developed by studying diatomic systems. Starting from fundamental principles, this book develops a theory that analyzes the energy levels of diatomic molecules and summarizes the many experimental methods used to study the spectra of these molecules in the gaseous state.

    • The most comprehensive book on the rotational spectroscopy of diatomic molecules to be published for over 40 years
    • Provides detailed descriptions of both the theory and experimental techniques involved
    • Written by leaders in the field

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Rotational Spectroscopy of Diatomic Molecules is carefully written and well produced." Physics Today

    "Rotational Spectroscopy of Diatomic Molecules is a detailed, wideranging presentation of all kinds of spectra within a given electronic-vibrational state of a diatomic molecule. All serious spectroscopists should have a copy and the book's price is reasonable. Besides, its sheer mass could be used to deter intruders." Physics Today
