This is a critical review and compilation of the observed and predicted spectroscopic data on O2 and its ions O2−, O2+ and O22+ The ultraviolet, visible, infrared, Raman, microwave, and electron paramagnetic resonance spectra are included. Each electronic band system is discussed in detail, and tables of band origins and heads are given. The microwave and EPR data are also tabulated. Special subjects such as the dissociation energy of O2, perturbations, and predissociations are discussed… 
Excited electronic states and ionic states of molecular oxygen
Abstract Since molecular oxygen O2 is one of the most fundamental and practically important molecules in its chemical and biochemical reactions, it is very important to clarify its excited electronic
Observation of electronically excited states of tetraoxygen
We have investigated electron transfer to O4+ in reactions with O2, NO, and Cs. We observe formation of O4 molecules that decay by predissociation and by direct dissociation. The kinetic energy
Molecular oxygen absorption continua at 195–300 nm and O2 radiative lifetimes
With the aid of new calculations on the transition moments between the six lowest states of O2, absorption cross sections have been calculated for several oxygen continua, including the A2Σu+ ← X3Σg−
O2(a 1Δg) absorption bands in the vacuum ultraviolet
The absorption spectrum of metastable O2, excited by a microwave discharge, has been photographed in second order of the helium continuum with a 6.65 m vacuum spectrograph. The band progression in
Spectroscopy and Photophysics of O2 in the Neighborhood of the Dissociation Limit in Rare Gas Solids.
The energy levels, potentials and relaxation mechanism of O2 doped in rare gas (Ar, Kr) and N2 solids in the neighborhood of the dissociation limit have been studied by means of absorption and
