Molecular Excitation
What is this critical phenomenon?

Molecular excitation refers to the promotion of an electron to an excited state. This particular pheomenon is extremely important for current scientific discovery, particularly in the biological sciences.

As you go through the topic, you will learn about the different concepts that are involved with an excitation event. Simple harmonic motion, Morse potentials, and electromagnetic radiation are just some of the topics that will be covered.

At the end of this particular section, you will be introduced to what happens following molecular excitation. In particular, you will be introduced to molecular emission events when the topic of fluorescence is introduced.
