Abstract:

Potential energy curves for the observed electronic states of N2, N2, NO, NO, O2 and O2 were calculated from published spectroscopic data by a numerical modification of the Rydberg-Klein method. Potential energy curves for a number of predicted but unobserved states of these molecules, and of the ground states of N2- unstable, NO- and O2-, were estimated with the help of simple theoretical considerations, published quantum-mechanical calculations, and indirect experimental evidence. The results are presented graphically.
