A Theoretical Study on Vibrational Predissociation Rates of Ne-I2
Jeonghee Seong, Hosung Sun
A new theoretical method, named the SCF-DWB-IOS approximation, is suggested to investigate the vibrational predissociation of triatomic van der Waals complexes. The meta stable vibrational excited states are described with SCF (self-consistent-field) approximation and the fragmented diatomic continuum states are determined by using IOS (infinite order sudden) approximation. The dissociation process itself is studied by using DWB (distorted wave Born) approximation. As a test case, the predissociation rates, rotational state distributions of products, and the lifetimes of vibrationally excited states of Ne-I2 are all computed which are in reasonable agreements with other theoretical and/or experimental results. The suggested SCF-DWB-IOS approximation scheme is found to be a very simple but efficient theoretical tool to investigate the vibrational predissociation dynamics of small van der Waals complexes.
