Vibrational IR Spectra of Solid Carbon Monoxide

Section: Solid Matter
Original Author's Text: English

Abstract: The vibrational energy levels of solid carbon monoxide are calculated, by considering a lo- cal Hamiltonian with the Morse potential with the use of the U(2) algebra. Each bond of the molecule is changed by a corresponding Lie algebra, and, fnally, the local Hamiltonian is constructed with the help of interacting Casimir and Majorana operators. Only the fundamental infrared stretching modes of vibration of solid carbon monoxide are then calculated, by using that Hamiltonian, and are compared with the experimental results.

Key words:  vibrational spectra, Lie algebra, solid carbon monoxide.
