Frequency shifts of vibrational and rotational states of dilute hydrogen, deuterium, and hydrogen monodeuteride molecular impurities in solid argon under pressure

The frequency shifts of the vibrational and rotational transitions of H2, D2, and HD mols. trapped in solid Ar are calcd. at zero temp. and at pressures 0 ? P ? 373 kbar. The pure vibrational and rotational-vibrational transition frequencies are strongly red-shifted in the solid at P = 0, compared to gas-phase values, and the agreement with Raman scattering measurements is generally good. The calcd. pure rotational transitions also show a small red shift at P = 0 in the solid and are in generally good agreement with the measurements of Jodl and Bier, (1984), but less so with those of Prochaska and Andrews (1977). The calcd. local-mode frequencies of the impurity mols. in the solid at P = 0 are also in good agreement with expt., esp. when thermal corrections are considered. With increasing pressure all transition frequencies and the local-mode frequencies are strongly blue-shifted with respect to P = 0 solid values. [on SciFinder (R)]
