35 - 2 5.73 Lecture #35 updated September 19, A. Importance of spin-orbit 1. H SO produces diagnostically significant “fine structure” CONFIGURATIONAL ASSIGNMENTS L,S term assignments PATTERNS:* # components * sign of pattern (largest splitting on top or bottom) * statistical weight (2J + 1) of lowest vs. highest energy component * overall magnitude of splitting 2. for heavy atoms, H SO responsible for such large splittings and off- diagonal interactions that L-S terms “vanish”, ∆S selection rules are violated. “Inter-System Crossing (ISC)”. Need to “deperturb” to recover F k , G k parameters which should vary smoothly from atom to atom (isoelectronic series) (shielding rules) 3. spin-forbidden transitions provide energy linkages between manifolds of states with different values of S. “InterSystem Crossing (ISC)” 4. non-textbook Zeeman tuning coefficients (clues about unobserved “dark” states) Atoms, Molecules, Quantum Dots, solids: in an electronic transition, light acts on single e and operates exclusively on spatial part of ψ spin-flips are forbidden except when H SO mixes states of different S — forbidden transitions “borrow” intensity from allowed transitions. In time-domain: a short pulse prepares, at t = 0, a non-eigenstate that is a pure ∆S = 0 excitation (and ∆ l = ±1) basis state. The “pluck”!
