Perturbations in the Band Spectrum of Beryllium Oxide

Abstract

BeO has three well-known electronic states—all singlets. These are in order, the normal 1?+, then the two activated states 1?*+ and 1II. The ?* – ? bands1,2 lie in the visible region, the II – ? bands3 in the infra-red. There are also bands in the ultra-violet1,4, but the analyses of them are questionable.
