We report a brief summary of ab initio configuration Interaction calculations on all of the electronic states of RgO (Rg = Ne, Ar, Kr, and Xe) arising from the $Rg(^{1}S) + O(^{3}P, ^{1}D, and ^{1}S)$ limits. All states, with the exception of the $1 ^{1}\Sigma^{+}$ state, are found to be unbound (with at most van der Waals’ minima). The binding in the $1^{1}\Sigma^{+}$ state is due in large part to the incorporation of $Rg^{+}(^{2}P) + 0^{-}(^{2}P)$ character and increases in the series: Ne(unbound) to Ar(essentially flat) to Kr(bound) to Xe(bound). The admixture of ionic character in the $1^{1}\Sigma^{+}$ state also strongly enhances the $2^{1}\Sigma^{+}-1^{1}\Sigma^{+}$ transition. en_US dc.format.extent 102934 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title THE LOW-LYING ELECTRONIC STATES OF THE RARE GAS OXIDES en_US dc.type article en_US
