Experimental and ab initio determination of the bending potential of HCP

The emission properties of HCP excited to the A, B, and d electronic states have been studied. Lifetimes and quenching rates have been measured. By spectrally resolving the emission spectrum, the energy of94 vibrational levels of the ground electronic state have been measured to an accuracy of :::; 5 cm -I. These energy levels were fit to experimental… (More)
