The temperature dependence of the emissions from the 0+(3P1)and 1(3P2) Kr*Ar exciplex states in the range 85–350 K was studied using time resolved techniques, vacuum ultraviolet synchrotron radiation, and argon samples doped with minimal amounts of krypton. As the temperature is increased, the emission shifts to the blue, its width increases by almost a factor of 2, and the line shape becomes asymmetrical. The experimental line shapes have been simulated by means of Franck–Condon density calculations using the available ground state potential of Aziz and Slaman [Mol. Phys. 58, 679 (1986)] and by modeling the exciplex potentials as Morse curves. The potential parameters for the 0+ and 1 states are re=5.05±0.01 and 5.07±0.01 a0, respectively; De=1150±200 cm-1 and β=1.4±0.1 a0-1 for both states. The latter two values yield ωe=140 cm-1 and ωexe=4.3 cm-1. The energy positions of the exciplexes’s wells and their depths are compared with published results. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
