Abstract:

Dielectric dispersion causes the outer-sphere reorganization free energy to vary with photon energy in optical electron transfer. The resulting distortion of the spectral response for photoelectron emission may yield misleading evidence about the emission yield vs. photon energy relationship. Dispersion is taken into account in the calculation of emission threshold energies and the correlation between optical and thermal electron transfer. Results are given for V2, Cr2, Mn2, Fe2, Co2, FeCN4-6. Author
