Using a single-configuration formulation, analytical expressions are derived for the (X²Πg) nsσg, npπu, and npσu Rydberg-valence interaction matrix elements in O₂. In addition, new results from diabatic, coupled-channel deperturbations of experimental data dependent on these interactions are reported for n=3 and 4. Using these results, the large differences in magnitude between the Rydberg-valence couplings for the constituent states of the npπuRydberg complex that are predicted by the...[Show more]
