A definitive analysis of the visible asborption bands (15800 - 23800 cm-1) is still lacking. At least three or four systems seem to be present with upper state frequenices of ~226 and 218 cm-1, but there is considerable disagreement concerning the assignments of the bands.

Notes

1Vibrational levels observed to v=29; a short extrapolation yields a dissociation limit at 35470 cm-1 while the banded absorption seems to go over into a continuum at 36570 cm-1.
2Rotational constants for 120Sn80Se; see Hoeft, 1966 who gives similar data for 28 other isotopic molecules.
3IR spectrum 6
4muel(v=0) = 2.82 D Hoeft, Lovas, et al., 1969, from Stark effect of microwave spectra Hoeft, Lovas, et al., 1969.
5From thermochemical data (mass-spectrometry) Colin and Drowart, 1964, recalculated with D00(Se2) = 3.411 eV (see Se2 note a). Assuming dissociation into 3P1 + 3P1 at the dissociation limit of the E state [see 1 and Barrow, 1970] gives D00 = 4.08 eV.
6In argon matrix.
