Overview

Spectra of Atoms and Molecules, 2nd Edition is designed to introduce advanced
undergraduates and new graduate students to the vast field of spectroscopy. Of
interest to chemists, physicists, astronomers, atmospheric scientists, and
engineers, it emphasizes the fundamental principles of spectroscopy with its primary
goal being to teach students how to interpret spectra. The book includes a clear
presentation of group theory needed for understanding the material and a large
number of excellent problems are found at the end of each chapter. In keeping with
the visual aspects of the course, the author provides a large number of diagrams and
spectra specifically recorded for this book. Topics such as molecular symmetry,
matrix representation of groups, quantum mechanics, and group theory are discussed.
Analyses are made of atomic, rotational, vibrational, and electronic spectra.
Spectra of Atoms and Molecules, 2nd Edition has been updated to include the 1998
revision of physical constants, and conforms more closely to the recommended
practice for the use of symbols and units. This new edition has also added material
pertaining to line intensities, which can be confusing due to the dozens of
different units used to report line and band strengths. Another major change is in
author Peter Bernath's discussion of the Raman effect and light scattering, where
the standard theoretical treatment is now included. Aimed at new students of
spectroscopy regardless of their background, Spectra of Atoms and Molecules will
help demystify spectroscopy by showing the necessary steps in a derivation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Bernath offers an excellent book on fundamental spectroscopy for senior-level undergraduates or graduate students. The revised edition (1st ed., 1995) includes updated references and consistent use or recommended symbols and units... The figures are plentiful and clear, and the index complete." Choice
