Figure 2. Potential curves of the A1Σu+ and X 1Σg+ states, the wave functions for v′  = 28, J = 155 and of two continuum states are displayed. The relative intensity of the corresponding bound-continuum spectrum is shown on the left. The dotted curve in the lower state is the "Mulliken difference potential." For two continuum states the range of internuclear distances contributing to the overlap integral has been indicated by a bar in the wave function.
