Notes

1Molecular constants estimated by Comer and Read, 1971 from a short progression of three very sharp resonances in electron scattering at 11.48, 11.75, 12.02 eV above X 1Sigmag+(v=0) of N2. The parent is the E 3Sigmag+ Rydberg state of N2, the grandparent X 2Sigmag+(v=0) of N2+.
2Ground state constants derived by Birtwistle and Herzenberg, 1971 from a comparison of experimental with calculated cross sections for the vibrational excitation of N2 by resonance scattering of electrons in the 2-4 eV region. The vibrational levels have a considerable width owing to preionization, but the width parameter Gamma decreases rapidly with increasing r from 0.57 eV at re(N2).
3 Holzer, Murphy, et al., 1969 observe DeltaG(1/2) ~ 1840 Holzer, Murphy, et al., 1969 for N2- in potassium halide single crystals.
4From D00(N2) and the e1ectron affinities of N2 and N, assuming for the latter -0.07 eV as given by Hotop and Lineberger, 1975.
5From the energy difference (corrected for zero-point energy) of the potential minima given by Birtwistle and Herzenberg, 1971; see 2.
6The minimum of the ground state potential function lies 1.925 eV above that of N2 Birtwistle and Herzenberg, 1971; see 2.
7Spectrum of N2- in potassium halides, confirming the 2Pi nature of the ground state.
