Abstract : Transition probabilities for the rotating Morse Oscillator have been calculated for dipole functions expressed as pow r series and as analytical expressions having the expected behavior with internuclear distance, using previously developed methods. Comparison with experimental data suggests that mu prime (reduced mass) for HF is increasing, but that the mu prime (reduced mass) for HCl is decreasing at the equilibrium internuclear distance. The general treatment used for the rotational perturbation of the vibrational transition probabilit is shown to reproduce the experimental data poorly. It is suggested that a recent approximation of this theory is unsatisfactory. (Author)
