Methylene excitation energies, transition probabilities, and frequency dependent polarizabilities Academic Article uri icon


  • The electronic structure of the low-lying valence states of the polyatomic free radical methylene (CH2) is investigated at two different geometries using multiconfigurational self-consistent field (MC SCF) and multiconfigurational random phase approximation (MC TDHF MC RPA) techniques. Oscillator strengths and polarizabilities of CH2 are also examined with the MC TDHF MC RPA. 1981.
