Abstract

Electric-field-induced electronic state g/u mixing of nearly isoenergetic rovibrational levels of the E0(g)(+)(P-3(2)) and D0(u)(+)(P-3(2)) ion-pair states of I-2 has been observed using optical triple resonance combined with resonance ionization. Detectable mixing with applied fields of 1 kV/cm occurs over a range of energy level separations of less than or equal to0.3 cm(-1). (C) 2004 American Institute of Physics.
