Abstract High-level ab initio computations have been performed on SnH+. The potential energy curves and spectroscopic constants of the low-lying Λ-S electronic states, as well as their associated Ω states, are derived at the icMRCI + Q level employing basis sets of quintuple-ζ quality. The transition dipole moments, Einstein coefficients, radiative lifetimes and Franck-Condon factors of three spin-forbidden transition bands ( 1 3 Π 1 − X 1 Σ 0 + + , 1 3 Π 0 + − X 1 Σ 0 + + and 1 1 Π 1 − X 1 Σ 0 + + ) are determined. Comparisons between our predictions and available experimental results indicate reasonable agreement. The spin-orbit coupling effect has been proved to affect these low-lying electronic states significantly.

Vibrational branching ratios in the B^2\Sigma^+-- X^2\Sigma^+and A^2\Pi-- X^2\Sigma^+optical-cycling transitions of BaH molecules are investigated using spectroscopic measurements and {\it ab initio} calculations. The experimental values are determined using fluorescence and absorption detection. The observed branching ratios have a very sensitive dependence on the difference in the equilibrium bond length between the excited and ground state, \Delta r_e a 1 pm (.5\%) displacement...

Abstract The Λ-S electronic states with respect to the lowest four dissociation limits of BeSb are investigated theoretically on the icMRCI + Q level employing basis set of quintuple-ζ quality. The geometrical parameters, potential energy curves, vibrational energy levels, spectroscopic constants for the twelve Λ ‐ S states are obtained, analyzed and compared with those of the Beryllium-VA group diatomic family species where data are available. The permanent dipole moments, transition dipole mom...

Abstract Theoretical investigations for NaMg have been performed on the icMRCI + Q level employing basis set of quintuple-ζ quality with corrections of core-valence correlation and scalar relativistic effect. The geometrical parameters, potential energy curves, vibrational energy levels, spectroscopic constants for the eight Λ-S states, with respect to the lowest four dissociation limits, are investigated. Through the spin-orbit coupling effect, these states split into fourteen Ω states. The per...

Abstract The THz rotational lines of CH+ and its isotopologues have been observed in the range of 0.9–2.6 THz with JPL frequency multiplication chains. They were analyzed together with the known A 1 Π - X 1 Σ + band system data by using the Dunham formulation and the conventional vibration–rotation energy formula. The Λ -doubling in 1 Π states was reexamined, and the doubling or shifts were found to be different for the e- and f-parity levels. In this investigation, the e- and f-parity states we...

Abstract Highly correlated ab initio calculations have been performed for an accurate determination of electronic structures and spectroscopic features for the low-lying electronic states of the MgS+ cation. The potential energy curves for the four Λ-S states correlating to the lowest dissociation asymptote are studied for the first time. Four Λ-S states split into nine Ω states through the spin–orbit coupling effect. Accurate spectroscopic constants are deduced for all bound states. The spin–or...

The fundamental 28SiH+ ion has been characterized in a collaborative work, utilizing a hollow-cathode discharge laser spectrometer and a cryogenic ion trap spectrometer. Twenty-three vibration–rotation transitions around 4.75 μm have been detected with high accuracy. This has facilitated the first direct measurement of the pure rotational transition at 453056.3632(4) MHz in the trap spectrometer. The measured and accurately predicted transitions enable the search for this ion in space with IR an...

The schemes for laser cooling of the OH− anion are proposed using an ab initio method. Scalar relativistic corrections are considered using the Douglas–Kroll Hamilton. Spin–orbit coupling (SOC) effects are taken into account at the MRCI+Q level. SOC effects play important roles in the transition properties of the OH− anion. Transition strengths for the transition of the OH− anion cannot be ignored. Large vibrational branching ratios for the and transitions are determined. Short spontaneous radia...
