Ground state vibrational spacings $\Delta G_{v} + 1/2$ with $v = 0 - 9$ have been extracted from the vibronic structure of two transitions. An extrapolation procedure based on an assumed inverse sixth power long-range potential reveals that the ground electronic state of $Xe_{2}$ supports 26 bound vibrational levels. Spectroscopic values for the potential well depth, $195.5 cm^{-1}$, and the zero-point energy, $10.4 cm^{-1}$, are compared to results from recent molecular beam scattering experiments by means of Rydberg-Klein-Rees plots of well depth versus well width. en_US dc.format.extent 160034 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title VACUUM ULTRAVIOLET ABSORPTION SPECTRUM OF THE VAN DER WAALS MOLECULE $Xe_{2}$.
