FIG. 3.

Illustration of two of the most distinguishing features of the solid-state infrared spectrum of coronene (b) [derived from Table II, Figs. 2a and 2g in Ref. 8] compared with the gas-phase infrared spectrum (a) [derived from Table II, Figs. 2a and 2g in Ref. 8] and its infrared spectrum in low temperature Ne Matrix (c) [derived from Table II, Figs. 2a and 2g in Ref. 8]. The bands’ positions are exactly as presented in Ref. 8. The shapes of the bands are qualitatively modeled with Gaussian functions to match the experimentally observed bands (Ref. 8) as closely as possible. The band at approximately represents four-frequency absorptions in the solid state, whereas in the gas-phase and the low temperature Ne matrix spectrum this band represents a one-frequency absorption. The band at approximately is present only in the solid-state spectrum and represent a two-frequency absorption. See Table IV for the exact band positions.

FIG. 4.

Illustration of two of the most distinguishing features of solid- state Raman spectrum of coronene (b) (see Table I in Ref. 9; also included in Table V) compared with the calculated spectrum at the symmetrical stationary point (a) (see also Table V) and the calculated spectrum at the symmetrical stationary point (c) (see Table V). The shapes of the bands are qualitatively modeled with Gaussian functions. The experimental band at approximately as present in the experimental Raman spectrum of crystalline coronene is only visible in the calculated spectrum but it is not visible in the calculated spectrum. The strong experimental line at approximately as present in the crystalline coronene spectrum is visible only in the calculated spectrum but is absent from the calculated spectrum.
