Notes

1From K+ -off- Ar total scattering cross sections Budenholzer, Galante, et al., 1975; reference to earlier experimental and theoretical work may be found in this paper.
2Based on atomic scattering data Buck and Pauly, 1968, Duren, Raabe, et al., 1968, Fluendy, Kerr, et al., 1975. The ground state potential supports nine vibrational levels Freeman, Mattison, et al., 1976.
3The spin-rotation interaction [gamma(v=0) = 8.0E-6 Mattison, Pritchard, et al., 1974, Freeman, Mattison, et al., 1976] as well as the hyperfine interaction Freeman, Mattison, et al., 1974, have been investigated.
