Electronic Potential Energy Curves of the Mg2 Excited Σ and Π States

Figure 1

Figure 1. Potential energy curve for the excited valence states of Mg2. The dashed portions of the 1Πg and 2 1Σg+ curves indicate regions that have not been investigated directly, but are estimated by joining known short-range and long-range behavior.
