DIPOLE MOMENT INDUCTION IN HOMONUCLEAR DIATOMIC MELECULES. I. THE ON- AXIS CASE

The distortion of the electronic wave function of a homonuclear diatomic molecule is considered for that case where the perturbing atom or molecule is on the molecular symmetry axis. A wave function particularly applicable to the physical situation is developed, and this wave function is specifically determined for diatomic oxygen as an example. The electric dipole moment thus induced in oxygen is then computed as a function of perturber separation.
