Abstract:

A 6.65 metre vacuum spectrograph has been installed and a wavelength resolution of 0.005 A attained. Absorption spectra of N2 below 1000 A have been rotationally analyzed, and homogeneous perturbations identified rotational line broadening in certain bands indicates the presence of predissociation at about 105cm above the N2DN2D dissociation limit. The absorption spectra of binary rare gas mixtures have been photographed and interpreted in terms of transitions within van der Waals molecules, from their bound ground electronic states to bound or free excited electronic states near the first and second atomic resonance levels of xenon and krypton.
