 Title: POTENTIAL ENERGY SURFACES AND VIBRATIONAL ENERGY LEVELS OF DCCl AND HCCl IN THEIR THREE LOW-LYING STATES Creators: Yu, Hua-Gen; Sears, Trevor J.; Muckerman, James T. Issue Date: 2005 Abstract: We present \textit{ab initio} multi-reference configuration interaction (MRCI) calculations of potential energy surfaces of HCCl in its three low-lying electronic states ($\tilde X ^1A^{\prime}$, $\tilde a ^3A^{\prime\prime}$ and $\tilde A ^1A^{\prime\prime}$) and for the spin-orbit coupling between the $\tilde X$ and $\tilde a$ states. The two singlet states become a degenerate $^1\Delta$ state in collinear geometries. The potential energy surfaces are interpolated from 6075 MRCI energy points. The final surfaces are slightly adjusted using a coordinate and energy scaling approach. The $T_e$ values of the $\tilde a ^3A^{\prime\prime}$ and $\tilde A ^1A^{\prime\prime}$ states are computed to be 2122.0 and 12209.8 cm$^{-1}$, respectively. Vibrational energy levels of the three states of DCCl and HCCl taking into account the Renner-Teller effect and spin-orbit coupling are computed. The calculated vibronic energy levels are in good agreement with the available experimental values. URI: http://hdl.handle.net/1811/30293 Other Identifiers: 2005-FD-13
