Abstract:

Elastic scattering angular distributions have been measured for scattering of beams of metastable Ar, Ne, and Xe by their respective ground state atoms at collision energies in the eV range. For neon and argon, calculations have been performed to obtain improved estimates of the relevant interatomic potentials. For the lowest Ar2 excimer potential, 1u, 0u - 3 Sigma u, the best available molecular beam and spectroscopic emission data are consistent with the following parameters in Morse-shape potential De 0.78 plus or minus 0.04 eV Re 2.33 plus or minus 0.02 A omegae 322 plus or minus 20cm.
