Title: Isotopic dependence of the predissociations of the E{sup 1}Π state of CO

The predissociations of the E{sup 1}Π state of CO are again studied. They include both the background predissociation attributed to the continuum of the A{sup 1}Π state and the accidental predissociation due to the k{sup 3}Π state. They are calculated using a coupled equations method. The three components of the k state are introduced. These predissociations are studied for different isotopologues and are shown to decrease with increasing reduced mass, in agreement with the experimental results of Ubachs et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 113, 547 (2000)].
