Multidimensional Franck Condon Factors

This contains settings controlling the calculation of Multidimensional Franck Condon Factors. One of these should be set up to connect each pair of electronic states between which Franck Condon factors are to be calculated. The per mode settings are contained in a Vibrational Mode Change object for each mode.


Symmetry Symmetry of electronic transition moment; default is 'auto'
Calculate True to calculate normal co-ordinate displacements and Dushinsky matrix from l matrix


Strength Relative electronic transition (dipole) moment - note that the relative intensity is proportional to the square of this value.
Note: The interpretation of this parameter changed for version 7.1. The scaling is now such that the strength is consistent with the strength parameter in Cartesian transition moments in asymmetric tops and (rank =1) spherical transition moments in linear molecules.
