This work was completed using a technique known as electrochromism^{\prime\prime}, which is the differential absorption of a molecule that results from uniform electric field being applied to an otherwise randomly oriented sample. Recently, to gain greater insight into these electric field effects, a system was built where the sample is oriented and then probed with light polarized at $0^{\circ}$, then $90^{\circ}$, with respect to the applied field (i.e. electric linear dichroism). This new technique has been employed in conjunction with electro-chromism. These combined results allow the determination of a number of excited state parameters including excited dipole moment excited state polarizability and polarization of transition, moment with respect to the ground state permanent dipole moment. The technique also affords the evaluation of the angular shift of excited dipole moment with respect to ground state moment. The results which have been obtained to date regarding current ongoing investigations of molecular Rydberg states will be presented. en_US dc.format.extent 147375 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title ELECTRIC LINEAR DICHROISM SPECTRA OF MOLECULAR RYDBERG TRANSITIONS en_US dc.type article en_US
