Abstract

The electronic structure and the excited state relaxation phenomena in condensed rare gases have been studied by absorption spectroscopy, photoelectron spectroscopy, and time resolved luminescence spectroscopy, all using selective excitation by monochromatized synchrotron radiation. Radiationless and radiative electronic transitions in excited states and the rearrangement of surrounding matrix atoms will be discussed for excited rare gas atoms in rare gas matrices. Furthermore, experimental results concerning the scattering of excitons within the free exciton branches, localization of excitons, relaxation within the self-trapped exciton states, and energy transfer to guest atoms and boundaries will be presented.
