Large-scale CI calculations are carried out to obtain accurate potential energy surfaces for the ellipsis pi(2)(g) manifold (X(3)Sigma(-)(g), 1(1)Delta(g), 1(1)Sigma(+)(g)) of electronic states of NCN. Separation of the low-lying singlet states from the triplet ground state is computed in close agreement with the results of a recent photoelectron study by… (More)
