Abstract

© 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. The binding energies of argon dimer are calculated by solving the homogeneous Lippmann-Schwinger integral equation in momentum space. Our numerical analysis using two models of argon-argon interaction developed by Patkowski et al. not only confirms the eight argon dimer vibrational levels of the ground state of argon dimer (ie, for j = 0) predicted by other groups but also provides a very precise means for determining the binding energy of the ninth state which its value is a matter of discussion. Our calculations have been also extended to states with higher rotational quantum number j and we have calculated the energy of all 174 bound states for both potential models. Our numerical results for vibrational levels of the ground state of argon dimer are in excellent agreement with other theoretical calculations and available experimental data.
