Re^2: Help needed with the Transition density matrix determination and analysis....

Siddheshwar Chopra

Dear Pavlo,
I read an article which used the Transition density matrix analysis. According to it, transition densities represent coherent electronic transitions between ground and electronically excited states.

Some references:
a) S. Mukamel, S. Tretiak, T. Wagersreiter, V. Chernyak, Science1997, 277,781 787;
b) S. Tretiak, K. Igumenshchev, V. Chernyak,Phys. Rev. B2005,71, 033 201;
c) S. Tretiak, S. Mukamel, Chem. Rev.2002, 102, 3171 3212;
d) S. Tretiak, V. Chernyak, S. Mukamel,Chem. Phys. Lett.1996, 259,5561;
e) K. I. Igumenshchev, S. Tretiak, V. Y. Chernyak,J. Chem. Phys.2007,127, 114902;
f) Y. H. Li, C. A. Ullrich, Chem. Phys.2011, 391, 157 163.

The transition-density matrix analysis helps in pointing out the section of structure/molecule from where the electronic transition mainly occurs.
Also I found a paper which describes the relation between transition dipole moment and transition density.
a) Mengtao Sun,Jianing Chen and Hongxing Xu, THE JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL PHYSICS 128, 064106 2008.

In general transition density contains information about the spatial location of the excitation.

Kind Regards,

>>Dear Users,
>>I wish to know about the determination of Transition density matrix. How do we extract it from the o/p data? Do we need to mention any special command to get the same? If no, then how to search for it in the o/p file? What all we can infer using it? Someone please throw some light on it.

>>Kind Regards,
