Abstract:

Emission spectra from the vacuum ultraviolet to the visible region have been obtained from the rare gas dimers of helium, neon, argon and krypton and from the xenon oxide excimer. Several new discrete and diffuse bands together with both structured and unstructured continua have been observed and some have been tentatively identified with specific electronic states of the molecule. Several of these spectra appear only under specific excitation conditions and were thus revealed in this research for the first time. Significant new results for helium and argon dimers have been obtained. A study of the higher excited states of rare gas - oxide and sulfide excimer is underway. Author
