In agreement with the experimental $studies,^{1}$ we find the lowest state of $O^{+}_{3}$ to be $^{2}A_{1}$; the $^{2}B_{1}$ state is found to lie nearby with the $^{2}A_{2}$ state, which the Hartree-Fock method predicts to be the lowest ion state, $1/2-1$ eV higher. Besides these three ion states so prominent in the photoelectron spectra of ozone, the calculations predict several ""shake-up"" states, involving ionization and excitation, within 5 eV of the lowest ionic state. The $^{2}B_{1}$ state is found to be the ground state of $O^{-}_{3}$, with a $(^{2}A_{1}, ^{2}B_{2})$ nearly degenerate pair next and a $^{2}A_{2}$ state highest. The calculations suggest that the electronic transition of $O^{-}_{3}$ observed in matrix isolation is a $^{2}A_{1} - X^{2}B_{1}$ transition. en_US dc.format.extent 114373 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title THE LOW-LYING STATFS OF THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE IONS OF OZONE en_US dc.type article en_US
