Editorial Reviews


"A few months after the first edition of May and Kuehn's book wasreleased, I met a Danish colleague at a conference in Montreux (onLake Geneva). He had spent the weekend reading the book in hishotel room, despite the beautiful weather and nice sightseeing!This anecdote illustrates the sucess met by the first edition, andif you liked it, then you will like the second edition even more!... the book provides a didactic and pedagogic presentation ofmolecular processes."

Prof. Majed Chergui, Laboratory of Ultrafast Spectroscopy, EcolePolytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, ChemPhysChem,4/2005

From the Back Cover

This 3rd edition has been expanded and updated toaccount for recent developments, while new illustrative examples aswell as an enlarged reference list have been added. It naturallyretains the successful concept of its predecessors in presenting aunified perspective on molecular charge and energy transferprocesses, thud bridging the regimes of coherent and dissipativedynamics, and establishing a connection between classic ratetheories and modern treatments of ultrafast phenomena.

While serving as an introduction for graduate students andresearchers, this is equally a must-have reference for graduatestudents and experimentalists, as well as an aid to interpretingexperimental data and accessing the original literature.

From the contents:

  • Electronic and Vibrational Molecular States.
  • Dynamics and Isolated and Open Quantum Systems
  • Interaction of Molecular Systems with Radiation Fields.
  • Vibrational Dynamics: Energy Redistribution, Relaxation, andDephasing.
  • Intramolecular Electronic Transitions
  •   Electron Transfer
  • Proton Transfer
  • Excitation Energy Transfer

Format: Hardcover
This book by Mr May and Mr Kühn gives thorough insight into the interactions of excited molecular systems.

If you are not afraid of quantum mechanics and like to know the theoretical connections and differences of effects like Förster Resonance Energy Transfer, Photo induced Electron Transfer, Dexter mechanisms, and J- and H-dimerization. This is the right book for you.

It might be better to be at least a masters student or a scientist interested in the field.
