Close-Coupling Calculations for Sodium-Argon Sodium-Neon and Sodium-Helium
The non-adiabatic close-coupled theory, developed by Mies and by George, is employed in a time-independent molecular calculation for Na-rare gas collisions in a radiations field. The intensity of the Na D1/D2 lines is calculated for both blue- and red-wing excitation and is in good agreement with the experimental results of Havey, Copeland, and Wang for NaAr. The effects of different Born-Oppenheimer potentials on D1/D2 line intensity is considered by also treating NaNe and NaHe. The individual parity contributions to the line intensities are significantly different from each other.
