Discusses the multichannel quantum defect theory simulations of excitation spectra to autoionizing high-n (n=13-150) Rydberg states for argon, hydrogen and nitrogen. Effects or rotational channel couplings in H and N; Preservation of window resonance in H in the presence of a strong field; Non-zero-quantum defects and their impact on Rydberg states.

    On the basis of ab initio calculations, four new large metastable Rydberg molecules: NH3CH3, NH2(CH3)2, NH(CH3)3, and N(CH3)4 are predicted to exist. All of these neutral species possess high-symmetry local minima but are not thermodynamically stable with respect to loss of H or CH3. Because...

    Radiative relaxation of S 2p-excited hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is investigated by dispersed ultraviolet and visible fluorescence spectroscopies. We observe distinct changes in the fluorescence spectra as a function of excitation energy. Excitation to Rydberg states below the S 2p ionization...

    The inter-atomic distances in potassium clusters of Rydberg matter (RM) at excitation levels n = 4-8 were recently measured by phase-delay spectroscopy (Holmlid, J Nanopart Res 12: 273, ). Excitation levels n < 4 with shorter inter-atomic distances exist for hydrogen clusters, and distances down...

    The ground electronic state of argon hydride has a repulsive potential apart from a long-range van der Waals minimum, but the Rydberg excited states have bound potentials similar to those of the ion ArH+.

    Microwave and submillimeter transitions for Ar–NH3 have been observed and assigned for the ∑ and Π states correlating asymptotically with Ar+NH3 (j=1,|k|=1). The ∑ states are found to lie below the Π states and are separated by approximately the inversion splitting of...
