Abstract

"The electronic transition moments of many band systems have been found to be linear functions of the internuclear distance. However, some band systems exhibit a quadratic variation of the transition moment. In these quadratic cases, the plots from which the variation of the transition moment is determined are based upon the approximation of the second r-centroid by the square of the first r-centroid. The square of the first r-centroid does closely approximate the second r-centroid by a simple error analysis shows that the small difference between the two is not a quantitative measure of the error introduced into the transition moment when the exact equality of the two is assumed. For the first positive bands of N₂ and first negative bands of N₂⁺, the error in the transition moment is about an order of magnitude larger than the error in the second r-centroid"--Abstract, page iii.
