Spectroscopy of superheavy two centre orbitals
The inner shell molecular orbitals formed in heavy ion collisions become states of superheavy atoms as the two nuclei amalgamate. It is shown that there is a unique correspondence between the scattering energy, i.e., the distance of closest approach, and the shape of the molecular X-ray spectrum of a superheavy system. Thus molecular spectroscopy can be used to investigate the shell structure of superheavy quasimolecules and even, in the limit, of superheavy atoms. © 1975.
