2a1)2(1b2)2(3a1)1(1b1)1, X 3B1. The ground state of C6H6 (benzene) is . . (a2u)2(elg)4, '( 'Aig. The vibrational states of molecules are usually indicated by giving the vibrational quantum numbers for each normal mode. e. v1 = 1, and (1, 2, 0) denotes the v1 + 2v2 state, etc. (iii) Notation for spectroscopic transitions The upper and lower levels of a spectroscopic transition are indicated by a prime' and doubleprime" respectively. Example hv = E' — E" Transitions are generally indicated by giving the excited state label, followed by the ground state label, separated by a dash or an arrow to indicate the direction of the transition (emission to the right, absorption to the left).
For linear molecules the value of Q (= A + 2) may be added as a right subscript (analogous to J for atoms). If the value of Q is not specified, the term symbol is taken to refer to all component states, and a right subscript r or i may be added to indicate that the components are regular (energy increases with Q) or inverted (energy decreases with Q) respectively. The electronic states of molecules are also given empirical single letter labels as follows. The ground electronic state is labelled X, excited states of the same multiplicity are labelled A, B, C,.
Net integrated absorption band intensities are usually characterized by one of the quantities A, S, S, F, or Gnet as defined in the table. The relation between these quantities is given by the (approximate) equations Gnet = F/NA = A/ioNA = S/i0 = S(kT/i0) However, only the first equality is exact. The relation to A, S and S involves dividing by the band centre wavenumber i for a band, to correct for the fact that A, S and S are obtained by integrating over wavenumber rather than the logarithm of wavenumber used for Gnet and F.
