Internuclear Distance R (À)

Figure 5.5 Potential energy of H2 as a function of internuclear separation. Note again the use of two alternate energy scales. The three solid curves correspond to the ground and first two excited electronic states. The horizontal lines represent vibrational levels. Arrows depict photo-excitation into the Lyman band, followed by either fluorescent decay or dissociation.
