Quasi-molecular orbital calculation using the DV-Xα method in Ne-Ne collisions

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Molecular orbital calculations were performed for Ne-Ne quasi-molecules formed during collisions by changing the internuclear distance between 0.01 and 10 a.u. using the discrete variational (DV)-Xα MO calculational method. The equilibrium number of electrons on the basis atomic orbitals were estimated as a function of internuclear distance from which the critical internuclear distance to form quasi-molecular orbitals were deduced.
