Title

The Vibration-Rotation-Tunneling Spectrum of the Polar and T-Shaped-N-in Isomers of (NNO)₂

Abstract

In this paper we report transition frequencies and line strengths computed for bright states of the NNO dimer. We use a previously reported potential obtained from explicitly correlated coupled-cluster calculations and fit using an interpolating moving least-squares method. The rovibrational Schroedinger equation is solved with a symmetry adapted Lanczos algorithm and an uncoupled product basis set. All four inter-molecular coordinates are included in the calculation. We propose two tools for associating rovibrational wavefunctions with vibrational states and use them to find polar-like and T-shaped-N-in-like rovibrational states. The first tool uses a re-expansion of the rovibrational wavefunction in terms of J = 0 eigenfunctions. The second uses intensities. Calculated rotational transition frequencies are in very close agreement with experiment.
