Abstract

Converged full-dimensional (6D) quantum mechanical calculation of energy levels of intramolecular stretching excited (HF)2(v1v 2) is presented for (v1v2) = (01), (10), (02), (20), and (11). The bound state calculation for the excited HF dimer employs the SQSBDE potential energy surface of Quack and Suhm and is for total angular momentum J = 0. This calculation provides the first rigorous theoretical result of energy levels for HF stretching excited HF dimer in full dimensions. The calculated fundamental transition frequencies are v1 = 3940.6 cm -1 and v2 = 3896.4 cm-1. These values are somewhat larger than the corresponding experimental measurement of 3930.9 cm-1 for v1 and 3868.3 cm-1 for v2. The overtone frequencies are calculated to be 2v1 = 7713.5 cm -1, 2v2 = 7642.5 cm-1, and v1 + v2 = 7841.8 cm-1. The theoretical tunneling splittings of the fundamentals v2 and v1 are, respectively, a factor of 5.3 and 3.7 smaller than the ground state splitting, compared to a factor of 3 from the experimental measurement. The splittings of the overtone states 2v 2, 2v1, and v1 + v2 are smaller than that of the ground state by factors of 9.6, 48, and 1.8, respectively. Some of the calculated energy levels of excited (HF)2 are spectroscopically characterized and assigned.
