Symmetric Top Transition Moments
The following types of transition moments are currently
for symmetric tops:
- Spherical -
dipole moment in
spherical tensor form allowing its use for multiphoton and Raman
transitions in addition to normal one photon transitions.
- Cartesian -
conventional a, b or c electric dipole moment
- Orbital - the
magnetic dipole moment arising from electron orbital motion.
This is normally only important for degenerate electronic
