Born-Oppenheimer Approximation Electron motion is much faster than nuclear motion. “frozen nuclear positions” Worst case is for hydrogen molecule - Electron orbital time in hydrogen ~ 0.1 fs, 0.1 x 10 -15 s H 2 vibrational time ~ 8 fs Born approximation treats the nuclei as “frozen” relative to the electron motion GOOD approximation Uncouples the nuclear motion from the electron motion and lowers the dimensionality of the Schroedinger equation which needs to be solved to get the energies
