Abstract
Van der Waals (vdW) molecules are of current interest for several reasons. They represent a unique class of simple diatomic species with weak long-range boundary forces. Properties of small vdW clusters allow one to understand forces that hold liquids and solids together. There is an increasing interest in various branches of atomic and molecular physics in determination of potential energy (PE) curves of these objects. The studies are interesting especially in the context of a prospective application as new laser media as well as experiments with cold molecules in various types of traps. Moreover, there are exist discrepancies between theoretical ab initio calculations concerning shape of the PE curves and results of analysis of experimental data. This concerns, for example, cadmium-rare gas (CdRG) and Cd2 systems. Therefore, there is a very strong motivation for the investigations which are presented in this short communications.
