Zero-phonon Line And Phonon Sideband - Line Shape
... The shape of the zero-phonon line is Lorentzian with a width determined by the excited state lifetime T10 according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle ... Without the influence of the lattice, the natural line width (full width at half maximum) of the chromophore is γ0 = 1/T10 ... introducing a temperature dependent broadening of the line width ...

Famous quotes containing the word line:

    Michelangelo said to Pope Julius II, “Self negation is noble, self-culture is beneficent, self-possession is manly, but to the truly great and inspiring soul they are poor and tame compared to self-abuse.” Mr. Brown, here, in one of his latest and most graceful poems refers to it in an eloquent line which is destined to live to the end of time—”None know it but to love it, None name it but to praise.”
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
