Notes

1The splittings between X1 and X2 and between A2 and A3 are very similar to those of the 2P ground states of Kr+ (5371 cm-1) or Xe+ (10537 cm-1) and Ne+ (780 cm-1). The splitting between A1 and A2 is molecular in nature; both states arise from 2P3/2 of Ne+. The corresponding splitting in the ground state is not resolved.
2The transition energy A2 - X1 is close to the difference between the ionization potentials of Ne and Kr or Xe, i.e. 61015 or 76096 cm-1. This agreement together with that mentioned in 1 makes the interpretation by Tanaka, Yoshino, et al., 1975 of the observed spectra as charge transfer spectra very convincing.
3From crossed beam differential scattering measurements Ng, Lee, et al., 1974.
4Theoretical values Bobetic and Barker, 1976; the ground state potentials support five or possibly six (NeXe) bound vibrational levels.
