Abstract
Electronic absorption spectra of impurities in superfluid helium is developed in time domain, using time-dependent density func-
tional theory to describe liquid 4
He and time-dependent perturbation theory to describe the electronic degrees of freedom of the
impurity. Angularly isotropic potentials are used to describe the molecule­helium interactions in the ground and excited electronic
states. The calculations rationalize experimentally observed phonon side-bands in 4
He droplets and in bulk helium, and allow
assignments of spectral features to specific motions of the liquid.
