Long-range dispersion interactions. II. Alkali-metal and rare-gas atoms

James Mitroy, Jun-Yi Zhang

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The dispersion coefficients for the van der Waals interactions between the rare gases Ne, Ar, Kr, and Xe and the low-lying states of Li, Na, K, and Rb are estimated using a combination of ab initio and semiempirical methods. The rare-gas oscillator strength distributions for the quadrupole and octupole transitions were derived by using high-quality calculations of rare-gas polarizabilities and dispersion coefficients to tune Hartree-Fock single-particle energies and expectation values. � 2007 The American Physical Society.
