The calculation of the interaction energies of the b' ^{1}Σ^{+}_{u} and c' ^{1}Σ^{+}_{u} states of ^{15}N_{2}
Abstract
Recent results of deperturbation calculations relating to the interaction of the bprime and cprime 1Sigma (u)(+) states of (N14)2 have been modified to render them applicable to (N15)2. Molecular constants obtained by the method of matrix optimization have been scaled by the use of standard isotopic formulas, and vibrational wavefunctions have been derived by the solution of the appropriate Schroedinger equations. The diagonal and offdiagonal (i.e., electronic interaction) matrix elements have been computed and the resulting vibronic matrix diagonalized. A sample comparison with observed data on fifteen of the lower 1 Sigma(u)(+) levels shows good agreement between theory and experiment. It is proposed that Jdependent calculations be carried out and used in the interpretation of highresolution spectra of the farultraviolet spectrum of (N15)2.
