Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Laser excitation spectroscopy of the ArKr heteronuclear molecule, studied in Ar/Kr gas mixtures over the interval 335 ≲λ≲ 485 nm, reveals a highly structured band peaking at 372 nm which is attributed to transitions of the excimer from the 5s 3Σ +(0-, 1) state (A 2Σ1/2+ core) to a shallow 0-, 1 potential having a B 2Π3/2 core and correlated with Ar(1S0) + Kr(6p) in the separated atom limit.
