The neat and mixed crystal emission spectra of UF6 are analyzed. The data are interpreted as being indicative of a substantial molecular Jahn-Teller interaction in the excited charge transfer state. Using a modified Franck-Condon analysis for a 3-dimensional vibrational space, it is found that D5 is approx. 2.02 and that the excited state is distorted along each of three v5 coordinates by roughly 0.09 A.
