As a result, while patterns of energy levels and appearance of "forbidden" spectral features are satisfactorily reproduced, the absolute position of the levels has not been calculated accurately enough to allow meaningful comparisons with those based on experimental assignments. In recent years, the machinery has been developed and applied to rather routinely make quite accurate calculations of level positions in strongly coupled systems (to, say, 20 cm$^{-1}$ per quantum of excitation). Such calculations, which have been carried out for systems such as BNB, the formyloxyl radical (HCO$_2$) and low-lying excited electronic states of propadienylidene (H$_2$C=C=C:), have now been completed for NO$_3$. The spectra obtained from the corresponding model Hamiltonian, which explicitly treat the coupling between the ground ${\tilde X}^2A_2^{\prime}$ and ${\tilde B}^2E^{\prime}$ electronic states, and use a fairly elaborate parametrization of the corresponding diabatic surfaces, are presented and discussed. en_US dc.language.iso en en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title IMPROVED DIABATIC MODEL FOR VIBRONIC COUPLING IN THE GROUND ELECTRONIC STATE OF NO$_3$ en_US dc.type Article en_US dc.type Image en_US dc.type Presentation en_US
