ABSTRACT
Explicitly correlated coupled cluster (CCSDT-1a-R12) results were obtained for the He2 interatomic potential from a new, integral-direct implementation. With the new code, Gaussian basis sets as large as 11s8p6d5f4g3h could be employed, and the potential energy curve was calculated over a wide range using a basis of the type 11s8p6d5f4g.This curve is very close to represent the basis set limit of the CCSDT-1a approach. At the internuclear separation R=5.6 a0, the CCSDT-1a limiting value for the interaction energy is -10.68 K. As the effect of quadruple substitutions can be estimated as -0.32 K, this limiting value is perfectly consistent with the accurate quantum Monte Carlo calculation of Anderson et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 99, 345 (1993)], who reported a well depth of -11.01±0.10 K. On the other hand, however, CCSDT-1a-R12 calculations of the He2 potential energy curve strongly indicate that the most recent semiempirical potentials available in the literature are slightly too repulsive for short (R≤4.0 a0) interatomic distances. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
