4 Organization of the material This book is concerned mostly with the spectroscopy of binary systems, but ternary spectra will also be reviewed in some detail. Absorption in fluids at liquid densities, and solids, on the other hand, is controlled by many-body interactions and cannot be considered here in any detail. We will mainly be concerned with two- and three-body atomic and molecular systems whose components preserve their identity during the radiative encounters. In other words, we will consider non-reactive atomic or molecular systems, such as interacting helium and argon atoms, He-Ar, or hydrogen pairs, H2-H2, in their electronic ground states.

The true nature of the intermolecular forces could be understood only after quantum mechanics was developed. When atoms or molecules with closed shells approach each other closely enough so that their electronic clouds overlap, the energy increases. At close range, the Pauli principle forces electrons into higher states; the effect is a net repulsion. To some degree, the Coulomb forces of the nuclei also contribute to the repulsion at near range. 3 R (nm) Fig. 1.
