By using the method of multiconfiguration self-consistent field, the electronic wave functions for the X /sup 3/..sigma../sup -//sub g/ and B /sup 3/..sigma../sup -//sub u/ states of O/sub 2/ are determined for twelve values of internuclear distances. From the appropriate electronic-vibrational functions, the oscillator strengths for the X /sup 3/..sigma../sup -//sub g/ ..-->.. B /sup 3/..sigma../sup -//sub u/ absorption (Schumann-Runge) continuum are calculated over the energy range of 7--9.5…

Electronic excitation and dissociation of O2 and S2 by electron impact.
The impact-parameter method is used to calculate integral cross sections for electronic excitation and dissociation of O/sub 2/ and S/ sub 2/ by electron impact and the effect of changing the initial rotational state is small.
Electron excitation of the Schumann-Runge continuum, longest band, and second band electronic states in O2.
Interestingly, while the present Schumann-Runge continuum and second band ICSs were in reasonable agreement with the respective BEf-scaling results, agreement for the longest band was poor below 100 eV with a possible reason for this apparently anomalous behavior being canvassed here.
Electronic structure of Rydberg levels of the oxygen molecule
Rydberg-state wavefunctions which converge to the O+2 ground state have been calculated at R=1.0, 1.117, 1.207, 1.3 and 1.4 AA for the total molecular symmetry of O+2(X2 Pi g) (nl) 1.3 Pi g.u for
Electronic Excitation of Molecules by Electron Impact
In this talk I will review the recent progress that has been made in the theoretical determination of differential and integral cross sections for the electronic excitation of molecules by low-energy
Electron‐impact dissociation of oxygen
The electron‐impact dissociation of O2 to form two oxygen atoms is observed in a crossed beam experiment at electron energies between 13.5 and 198.5 eV. Detection of the correlated dissociation
Molecular Dynamics for State-to-State Kinetics of Non-Equilibrium Molecular Plasmas: State of Art and Perspectives
The theoretical prediction of molecular plasma features in non-equilibrium conditions relys on the knowledge of the microscopic collisional dynamics. The state-to-state kinetic approach in fact
