    We have examined the electronic structure of HgCl2 and HgBr2 from 5 to 14 eV by high resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy. Our measurements include the near-UV region which has not been examined by any previous technique and which is found to be rich in Rydberg states. In particular, in...
