This textbook introduces the molecular physics and quantum chemistry needed to understand the physical properties of molecules and their chemical bonds. It follows the authors' earlier textbook "The Physics of Atoms and Quanta" and presents both experimental and theoretical fundamentals for students in physics and physical and theoretical chemistry. The new edition treats new developments in areas such as high-resolution two-photon spectroscopy, ultrashort pulse spectroscopy, photoelectron spectroscopy, optical investigation of single molecules in condensed phase, electroluminescence, and light-emitting diodes.

Industry Reviews

From the reviews:

"The presentation is self-contained and logical, often with excellent illustrations chosen with care ... The perspective is fresh and well suited to the current interest in materials science ... I recommend the book and have used it as independent reading for our majors in physical chemistry."

Zoltan Geza Soos, Physics Today, 2/1997

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The present textbook concerns itself with two inseparably connected themes: chemical bonding and the physical properties of molecules. ... Each chapter ends with a set of problems ... . The bibliography contains numerous and up to date references to the original literature. ... I recommend this book unreservedly for its high pedagogical value, more specially to the students starting their Mater degree (1ere licence)." (Freddy Binon, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)
