Metastable optical excitations of linear C- 5

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

21 Scopus citations


It is theoretically predicted that the C- 5 electronic vertical excitations are metastable with respect to the electron ejection. The energies of the lowest 4Σ- u, 4Σ- g, 2Σ- u, 2Σg, 2Δu and 2Δg states evaluated using first-order correlation orbitals and the coupled cluster method are reported.
