Cavity Ringdown Spectrum of 2-Cyclohexen-1-one in Its Lowest Singlet Excited State
The overall goal of our experimental research program is to determine bond properties, such as vibrational frequencies, for small molecules. Such data may be used by computational chemists to verify their theoretical predictions for small molecules. This process can lead to refinement of computational techniques for treating larger molecules. Ultimately, the increased accuracy of computed excited-state properties will permit a theoretical description of complex photochemical events.
