Title: The determination of potential energy curve and dipole moment of the (5)0{sup +} electronic state of {sup 85}Rb{sup 133}Cs molecule by high resolution photoassociation spectroscopy

Abstract

We present the formation of ultracold {sup 85}Rb{sup 133}Cs molecules in the (5)0{sup +} electronic state by photoassociation and their detection via resonance-enhanced two-photon ionization. Up to v = 47 vibrational levels including the lowest v = 0 vibrational and lowest J = 0 levels are identified with rotationally resolved high resolution photoassociation spectra. Precise Dunham coefficients are determined for the (5)0{sup +} state with high accuracy, then the Rydberg-Klein-Rees potential energy curve is derived. The electric dipole moments with respect to the vibrational numbers of the (5)0{sup +} electronic state of {sup 85}Rb{sup 133}Cs molecule are also measured in the range between 1.9 and 4.8 D. These comprehensive studies on previously unobserved rovibrational levels of the (5)0{sup +} state are helpful to understand the molecular structure and discover suitable transition pathways for transferring ultracold atoms to deeply bound rovibrational levels of the electronic ground state.

  • In this study, we investigate the structure of the polar alkali-metal-atom-strontium diatomic molecules as possible candidates for the realization of samples of ultracold polar molecular species not yet investigated experimentally. Using a quantum chemistry approach based on effective core potentials and core polarization potentials, we model these systems as effective three-valence-electron systems, allowing for calculation of electronic properties with full configuration interaction. The potential curve and the permanent dipole moment of the {sup 2}{Sigma}{sup +} ground state are determined as functions of the internuclear distance for LiSr, NaSr, KSr, RbSr, and CsSr molecules. These molecules are found to exhibit amore » significant permanent dipole moment, though smaller than those of the alkali-metal-atom-Rb molecules.« less
  • In this paper, we systematically investigate the electronic structure for the {sup 2}Σ{sup +} ground state of the polar alkali-metal-alkaline-earth-metal molecules BaAlk (Alk = Li, Na, K, Rb, and Cs). Potential energy curves and permanent dipole moments (PDMs) are determined using power quantum chemistry complete active space self-consistent field and multi-reference configuration interaction methods. Basic spectroscopic constants are derived from ro-vibrational bound state calculation. From the calculations, it is shown that BaK, BaRb, and BaCs molecules have moderate values of PDM at the equilibrium bond distance (BaK:1.62 D, BaRb:3.32 D, and BaCs:4.02 D). Besides, the equilibrium bond length (4.93 Åmore » and 5.19 Å) and dissociation energy (0.1825 eV and 0.1817 eV) for the BaRb and BaCs are also obtained.« less
  • Potential energy and dipole moment surfaces for the water molecule have been generated by multireference singles-and-doubles configuration interaction calculations using a large basis set of the averaged-atomic-natural-orbital type and a six-orbital-six-electron complete-active-space reference space. The surfaces are suitable for modeling vibrational transitions up to about 11000cm{sup {minus}1} above the ground state. A truncated singular-value decomposition method has been used to fit the surfaces. This fitting method is numerically stable and is a useful tool for examining the effectiveness of various fitting function forms in reproducing the calculated surface points and in extrapolating beyond these points. The fitted surfaces have beenmore » used for variational calculations of the 30 lowest band origins and the corresponding band intensities for transitions from the ground vibrational state. With a few exceptions, the results compare well with other calculations and with experimental data. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}« less
  • An analytical expression for the external well of the Cs{sub 2} 0{sub g}{sup -}(6s+6P{sub 3/2}) double-well potential curve is derived, involving asymptotic parameters fitted on the spectrum obtained from photoassociation of ultracold cesium atoms and ultracold molecule formation [Fioretti et al., Europhys. J. D 5, 389 (1999)]. The results are compared to a previous Rydberg-Klein-Rees determination from our group, and may have consequences on the determination of cesium triplet scattering length. Values for radiative lifetimes {tau}{sub 3/2}=30.462(3) ns and {tau}{sub 1/2}=34.88(2) ns of the 6P{sub 3/2} and 6P{sub 1/2} atomic levels, respectively, are extracted with an accuracy better than previousmore » determinations. The method of Derevianko and Porsev [Phys. Rev. A 65, 053403 (2002)], allows the derivation of an improved value for the van der Waals coefficient of ground-state cesium molecule, C{sub 6}{sup 6s}=6828(19) a.u.« less
  • The Born--Oppenheimer potential energy curve for the electronic ground state of the hydrogen molecule has been computed for internuclear distances 0.2< or =R< or =12.0 bohr. At all R the energies are lower than any previously reported values. At the equilibrium distance the improvement is negligible; its largest value, 0.47 cm/sup -1/, has been obtained for R = 2.4 bohr. Vibrational energies have been computed for all isotopic species using the new potential energy curve. For H/sub 2/, HD, and D/sub 2/ the recent nonadiabatic corrections of Wolniewicz have been included. The resulting dissociation energies of H/sub 2/ and HDmore » agree with the experimental values within the experimental error limits; for D/sub 2/ the discrepancy amounts to 0.6 +- 0.3 cm/sup -1/.« less
