A multiscale approach is proposed to address short-time nonadiabatic dynamics and long-time decay. We show the role of both radiative and non-radiative processes in cluster decay mechanisms on examples of rare-gas cluster fragmentation after electron impact ionization. Nonadiabatic molecular dynamics is used as an efficient tool for theoretical study on femto- and picosecond scales and a multiscale approach based on kinetic rates of radiative as well as non-radiative transitions, both considered as parallel reaction channels, is used for the analysis of the long-time system relaxation spanning times over microseconds to infinity.While the radiative processes are typically slow, the system relaxation through non-radiative electronic transitions connected with electron-nuclear interchange of energy may, on the other hand, significantly vary in kinetic rates according to kinetic couplings between relevant adiabatic states.
