Recent experiments are described in which the electronic excited state structure of the rare gas dimers (Rg2), the triatomic rare gas-halide molecules Kr2F and Xe2Cl, and the heteronuclear KrAr have been studied in absorption or by laser induced fluorescence. One key aspect of these spectroscopic experiments is that the excited states are probed near their equilibrium radii. Measurements of the absolute photoionization cross-sections for the lowest lu, Oū states of Kr2 and Xe2 are also discussed.
