Abstract:

Emmision and absorption of radiation by diatomic molecules is reviewed, and elementary molecular theory for use in a variety of applied physics and engineering problems is presented in a semiclassical manner. A computer code for the numerical integration of the radial Schrodinger equation has been created and is documented as a subroutine of a code for the computation of the electric dipole-moment matrix elements of diatomic molecules. The effect of the vibration-rotation interaction on high v-J matrix elements is discussed.
