Description

Abstract This paper describes a program for calculating the bound → continuum transition intensities associated with photodissociation, spontaneous emission or predissociation, of a diatomic molecule. If desired, it may also perform least-squares fits to experimental data to determine parameters characterizing the transition moment (coupling function) and/or final-state potential energy function(s). Title of program: BCONT Catalogue Id: ABHC_v1_0 Nature of problem This program calculates the bound -> continuum transition intensities associated with photodissociation, spontaneous emission or predissociation from vibration-rotation levels of a single (bound) initial-state potential into continuum levels of one or two distinct final electronic states, and if desired, fits to experimental data to determine parameters characterizing the final-state potential and/or transition coupling functions. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ABHC_v1_0; BCONT; 10.1016/0010-4655(89)90113-6 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
