Stable potential minima and the Jahn-Teller interaction

View publication

Abstract

The potential minima of a molecule undergoing the Jahn-Teller effect are investigated. It is shown that necessarily in the harmonic approximation the corresponding electronic wave functions depend on nuclear coordinates in a topological sense but not metrically. Apart from a unique case the associated molecular configurations have a definite axial symmetry. © 1968 The American Physical Society.
