AbstractWe present experimentally derived potential curves 1?and spin-orbit interaction functions for the strongly perturbed AΣu+ 3?and bΠu states of the cesium dimer. The results are based on data from several sources. Laser-induced fluorescence Fourier transform spectroscopy (LIF FTS) was used some time ago in the Laboratoire Aimé Cotton primarily to study the XΣg+ state. More recent work at Tsinghua University provides information from moderate 3?resolution spectroscopy on the lowest levels of the bΠ0u± state as well as additional high-resolution data. From Innsbruck University, we have precision data obtained with cold Cs2 molecules. Recent data from Temple University was obtained using the optical-optical double resonance polarization spectroscopy technique, and finally, a group at the University of Latvia has added additional LIF FTS data. In the Hamiltonian matrix, we have used analytic potentials (the expanded Morse oscillator form) with both finite-difference (FD) coupled-channel and discrete variable representation (DVR) calculations of the term values. Fitted diagonal and off-diagonal spin-orbit functions are obtained and compared with ab initio results from Temple and Moscow State universities. © 2011 American Physical Society.
