The calculations were carried out using the LS-coupling scheme with the effects of spin-orbit coupling included in the resulting potential energy curves using an empirical procedure. A comparison of non-relativistic and averaged relativistic EP’s and subsequent molecular calculations indicates that relativistic effects arising from the mass-velocity and Darwin terms are not important for these properties of $Xe_{2}$ molecules. Spectroscopic constants for $Xe_{2}^{+}$ are in good agreement with all electron CI calculations suggesting that the computed values for $Xe_{2}^{*}$ excimers should be reliable. The lifetimes for the lower states of $Xe_{2}^{*}$ are computed. en_US dc.format.extent 136349 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title POTENTIAL ENERGY CURVES FOR $Xe_{2}^{+}$ AND $Xe_{2}^{*}$ en_US dc.type article en_US
