Attempts were made to interweave quantum chemistry and experimental electronic state spectroscopy. The work was divided into subclasses 1 color of dyes, where typical photographic sensitizer dyes were investigated and the absorption and emission of monomer and dimer species catalogued and interpreted in order to assign transitions 2 benzene derivatives, where the nature of the symmetry of the low wave functions for the low-lying states of benzene was studied 3 four pi electrons in 3 pi orbitals, where theoretical and experimental studies were made on amidinium and amides and on the electron dynamics of the peptide link as found in proteins and in photographic gelatin and 4 electronic spectrum of molecular crystals, which proposed a classification of crystal spectra into 2 categories by whether the energy transfer is fast or slow compared with the Lissajous figure motion induced in a single molecule by the act of light absorption.
