Ultra-violet Band Systems of the Emitters GeCl and GeBr


THE available data for the band systems of diatomic halides of Group IV(b) elements are fragmentary and give conflicting indications of the nature of the ground states, for which either 2 or 2II is theoretically possible, and the latter has been regarded as more probable1. We have recently made observations of band systems of GeCl and GeBr, which seem to clarify the situation considerably.
