The Intensity of Absorption Derivation of an Expression for the Intensity as Function of the Transition Probability per Unit Time The time dependent Schrodinger equation is Hwm at The formal solution is t e thh 5y e iEth 5y where the following definitions apply it a Planck39s constant H a hamiltonian an operator E 2 energy eigenvalue a constant 912 wave function Derivation of an Expression for the Intensity as Function of the Transition Probability per Unit Time We can treat an applied electromagnetic field as a perturbation to the hamiltonian The zeroth order hamiltonian that of system without the field is H0 The field hamiltonian is H1 uE The total hamiltonian is H H0 H1 H0 uoE We consider two states an initial state i and a final state f The transition probability between the two states is Wf 71quot ltfuEi gt28o 0 8w 0 2i2 This expression is an approximate solution known as the Fermi Golden Rule The Golden Rule gives the transition probability per unit time for transitions from i 9 f The above expression is also valid for transitions from f 9 i if we interchange the indices The same inherent transition rate applies for the absorption probability Derivation of an Expression for the Intensity as Function of the Transition Probability per Unit Time We wish to relate the transition rate to the intensity of absorbed radiation It is the intensity that we will use to define the timecorrelator for spectroscopy First we determine the net energy change in the radiation field upivvifnm piT The energy density is u There are N molecules in volume V The pi is the probability that

probability Note that the amplitude of the radiation E0 has been factored out and instead there remains a unit vector pointed in the direction of the polarization of the radiation We can choose any direction for the incident radiation in the absence of applied static fields Suppose we choose xpolarization The square of the transition moment uif2 can be replaced by 13 H xltif For a given

broadening due to the lifetime or pure dephasing time Spectral broadening has a mathematical form called the lineshape function Lo Delta function Lo 50 00 Lorentzian function Lltcogt NW 2 co 02 Gaussian function Lo 1M7 exp 0 DOVr2 The delta function Level 2 T Energy E2 hv l Level 1 Energy E1 The delta function is applied theoretically to the case where there is no broadening The two energy levels involved in a transition are infinitely narrow The delta function A delta function is an infinitely narrow infinitely high function whose area is normalized to one This is a little difficult to understand unless we give a model for a delta function One model is the square function Imagine a function whose value is 1a over the range a2 lt X lt a2 and 0 outside these values This function is plotted below for three values of a Properties of the delta function 1 The delta function is the eigenfunction of the position operator For a free particle we can operate with the position operator x hat The eigenvalue equa onis Q8X X0 X08X X0 The eigenvalue is x0 the actual position of the particle The delta function specifies that of all the possible x values only x0 is nonzero Properties of the delta function 2 The integral properties of a delta function are as follows A The integral over 5x x0 is equal to the function evaluated at x0 0 fX8X X0dX fXO 00 B The area under the delta function is one r 8X X0dX 1 Properties of the delta function 3 The value of a delta function is zero everywhere except where the argument is zero 5X XOOf0I X XO 5XOf0I X O 4 A change of argument by a factor results in multiplication by the inverse of the factor 8kx i8X lkl To see this consider the above rectangular function The delta function is 1a over the limits a2 lt x lt a2 Thus the height is 1a and the base is a If we multiply the height by k then it becomes ka This means that we should multiply the base by 1k In other words since 0 6Xdx 1 we have qr 5kxdx 1 thus k6kx 5x Lifetime broadening T1 Pure dephasing T The uncertainty principle gives a relation ship between the natural linewidth and the lifetime T1 of a state For example a state with a 1 ps lifetime will be 5 cm1 in width Pure dephasing of ground and excited state vibrational wave functions also contributes to the energy width The time T2 indicates the time required to lose coherence between ground and excited state during absorption NMR spectroscopy The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Phenomenon The Magnetization Vector Spin Relaxation Linewidths and Rate Processes The Nuclear Overhauser Effect The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Phenomenon Nuclei may possess a spin angular momentum of magnitude II1h The component around an arbitrary axis is mlh where mI 1 11 The nucleus behaves like a magnet in that it tends to align in a magnetic field The nuclear magnetic moment u has a component along the zaxis uz y mI n The magnetogyric ratio and nuclear magneton The magnetogyric ratio is y where yh quN The nuclear gfactor ranges from ca 10 to 10 Typical gfactors 1H g5585 13C g1405 14N g0404 The nuclear magneton is uN where MN e 505 gtlt1O27J 7 1 2mp Nuclear magnetic moments are about 2000 times smaller than the electron spin magnetic moment because uN is 2000 times smaller than the Bohr magneton The Larmor frequency Application of magnetic field B to a spin1I2 system splits the energy levels Em1 23 39Yth1 B

The classical vs quantum view According to a classical picture the nuclei precess around the axis of the applied magnetic field BZ or BO In the quantum view a sample is composed of many nuclei of spin 1 12 The angular momentum is a vector of length 11 1 2 and a component of length mI along the zaxis The uncertainty principle does not allow us to specify the x and y components In either case the energy difference between the two states is very small and therefore the population difference is also small N This small population difference 5 e hVLkT gives rise to the measured N a magnetization

Precessmg rates due to spinspin coupling vector M and they dephase due to spin ips The longitudinal relaxation time governs relaxation back to the equilibrium magnetization along the zaxis The transverse relaxation time is the time required for spin dephasing in the xy plane as the spins precess Quadrature detection and the FID In order to obtain phase information detection along both x and y directions is required Instead of using two coils to detect the radiofrequency signals one uses two detectors in which one has the phase of the reference frequency shifted by 90 These correspond to

vector to its initial position There is longitudinal relaxation T1 and tranverse relaxation T2 LL1 T2 2T1 T T2 is also called the pure dephasing T1 is also called the spinlattice relaxation time T2 is also called the spinspin relaxation time Fourier Transform A Fourier series represents any periodic function as a sum of sine and cosine functions with appropriate coefficients Since the sinusoids each have a representative frequency a periodic function in time can be analyzed in terms of its frequency For non periodic functions we use a Fourier transform to decompose a function of time arbitrary into its frequency components We call time and frequency conjugate variables Likewise position and momentum are conjugate variables Conjugate variables For any conjugate variables x and k we
