Theoretical determination of the vibrational levels of NH3+ and its isotopomers

Abstract : The vibrational levels associated with the electronic ground state X2A2'' of NH3+ have been determined up to 5000 cm-1 by perturbation and variational calculations with full dimensionality of the molecule. For the variational part a new version ofMULTIMODE was used which uses the ab initio electronic energy and its first derivative to define the potential energy function. These quantities were generated by the B97-1 density functional and RCCSD(T) approaches. For ND3+ , ND2H+ and NDH2+ the vibrational levels were calculated only by perturbation theory. The rotational constants for all the isotopomers were determined and the first transition dipole moments for NH3+ and ND3+ were plotted. A critical comparison of the perturbation and variational techniques suggests a possible further modification to the MULTIMODE algorithm for large systems.
