We apply a semiclassical approach to the scattering problem of a vibrational wave packet in the vicinity of a conical intersection of electronic energy surfaces and derive analytical expressions for the scattering matrix. The latter are valid when the scattering length that scales as â., is small and a wave packet passes through the scattering region with a constant velocity. The analytical results are in excellent agreement with numerical simulations for a realistic set of parameters.
