Intrinsic and light-induced nonadiabatic phenomena in the NaI molecule

Author affiliations

Abstract

Nonadiabatic effects play a very important role in controlling chemical dynamical processes. They are strongly related to avoided crossings (AC) or conical intersections (CIs) which can either be present naturally or induced by classical laser light in a molecular system. The latter are named as “light-induced avoided crossings” (LIACs) and “light-induced conical intersections” (LICIs). By performing one or two dimensional quantum dynamical calculations LIAC and LICI situations can easily be created even in diatomic molecules. Applying such calculations for the NaI molecule, which is a strongly coupled diatomic in field free case, significant differences between the impact of the LIAC and LICI on the ground state population dynamics were observed. Moreover, obtained results undoubtedly demonstrate that the effect of the LIAC and LICI on the dynamics strongly depends on the intensity and the frequency of the applied laser field as well as the permanent dipole moments of the molecule.
