Re^5: How to check for acceptance of Kasha's rule from TDDFT data...?

Pavlo Solntsev

To be honest, i have no idea what you are trying to ask. What do you call de-excitation?

I really recommend you to play with small molecule first to understand how it works.
Do a search on this forum. People already discussed a calculation of luminescence.

>then what are these excited states? Ideally speaking in this run, S1 is the ground state. The excited state 1 has the lowest energy (-1355.7217994424). Then it should be the lowest vibrational level of S0.

>>Dear Pavlo,
>>That is some real relief... Actually the same under study is a doped one. Sir please read my last message and answer them. The picture of Emission process is unclear to me, with regard to the firefly calculations. The ISSTATE=1 is ENSURING that we are finding a transitions from S1 only..Is it correct?
>>So now SPECIFICALLY about the emission calculations::: What are these EXCITED STATE 1, 2 and so on (depending on NSTATE vaue)? I mean are these the S0 vibrational levels now (because now we are studying de-excitation)? If yes, then how exactly do I find the emission wavelength? Is the analysis similar to the absorption spectra analysis then? I mean using osc. str. etc.? Please guide me.
>>Also if Kasha's rule holds good, then do I get a high osc. str. at 1st excited state itself in the o/p file?

>>>>Dear users,
>>>>Somebody please help me in understanding this concept. I need to know that by setting istate =1 in emission spectra calculation, I am actually setting or calculating the de-excitation from the S1 state. Am I correct? If yes, then the TDDFT o/p gives me a set of transitions possible for every excited state (set by variable nstate).What are these nstates now? Do they hold any significance in S1-->S0 transition? Do we mean that these are the vibrational levels of S0 level? Please explain this in the light of kasha's rule.

>>>>>Dear Users,
>>>>>Please have a look at the attached file which contains a table describing the contributions/transitions from first four states only for both the absorption and emission calculations. For absorption, I understand that the final state can be any of the excited states which has highest osc. strength. Am I right? But my doubt is regarding kasha's rule... If you see the emission data, the first excited state has a very low oscillator strength of 0.004 (HOMO-->LUMO(97 at 2678.9 nm. However the higher states have a better contribution than this state. So please tell me how to analyse this properly. To my knowledge emission wavelength is around 600-730nm.
