New CO-CO interaction potential tested by rovibrational calculations.


A four-dimensional potential energy surface (PES) for the CO dimer consisting of rigid molecules has been calculated, using a scheme that combines density functional theory to describe the monomers and symmetry adapted perturbation theory for the interaction energy (DFT-SAPT). The potential is fitted in terms of analytic functions, and the fitted potential… (More)
