Abstract

Vibration-rotation wave functions for HF and HI are computed by solving the radial Schroedinger wave equation numerically using an anharmonic potential function with seven adjustable parameters. With these wave functions the matrix elements of [(r — r e)/r e ] n are computed. These are then applied in a least squares fit to experimentally measured values of the electric dipole matrix elements to yield the dipole moment coefficients Af 0 , M\ ,..., M 5 .
