Notes

1From the maxima of the photoelectron spectrum Potts, Williams, et al., 1974, missing citation.
2Removal of an electron from the metal 3p shell.
3Removal of an electron from the halogen 4p shell.
4Thermochemical value Brewer and Brackett, 1961, Bulewicz, Phillips, et al., 1961; from the analysis of the fluctuation bands in the UV absorption spectrum Levi, 1934 and Barrow and Caunt, 1953, estimate 3.96 and 4.10 eV, respectively.
5Adiabatic potential from the photoelectron spectrum Potts, Williams, et al., 1974, not corrected for thermal population of the ground state-vibrational levels; vertical potential 8.34 eV.
6Absorption cross sections Davidovits and Brodhead, 1967. The electron energy loss spectrum Geiger and Pfeiffer, 1968 has peaks at 37000, 52000, 63000 cm-1.
7See note d of CsBr. From the emission data Kaufmann, Kinsey, et al., 1974, have constructed a tentative upper-state potential energy curve which is, however, dependent on the model potential used for the ground state.
8From the IR spectrum. The Dunham theory applied to the microwave results gives omegae = 219.17 Rusk and Gordy, 1962, omegaexe = 0.758 Rusk and Gordy, 1962.
9muel[D] = 10.60256 + 0.05045(v+1/2) + 0.00015(v+1/2)2 Van Wachem, De Leeuw, et al., 1967, de Leeuw, van Wachem, et al., 1969; nuclear quadrupole and spin-rotation constants in de Leeuw, van Wachem, et al., 1969, see also Fabricand, Carlson, et al., 1953.
10From D00(KBr) + I.P.(K) - I.P.(KBr); Potts, Williams, et al., 1974 give 0.33 eV.
