This new, expanded edition provides a fresh, photon-based description ofmodern molecular spectroscopy and photophysics, with applications that aredrawn from across the breadth of chemistry, biology, physics, and materialsscience, including recent developments. The focus is on the mechanisms thatoperate at the fundamental level, on how light absorption and scattering occurin molecules, what happens to the energy which the molecules acquire, and whatmay be learned from the study of these processes. Mathematics is again kept toa minimum though quantitative understanding is nevertheless put into practice viaexample calculations throughout the text. With the aid of extensive, purposelydevised illustrations, this approach fosters a deeper intuition for thephotophysical processes involved in light‒matter interaction, aiming toconsolidate the principles and to exemplify how widely ranging information canbe derived from spectroscopic studies.
