Abstract : The ionization energy of the 23S state of Li+ was computed as 134044.12 cm-1 in excellent agreement with the experimental value of 134044.19 ! 0.10 cm-1, determined by Herzberg and Moore. The theoretical ionization energy of the 21S state of Li+ came out 118704.88 cm-1, as against the value of 120008.30 ! 0.10 cm-1 determined by Herzberg and Moore. It appears that the 8517.4 A line measured by Series and Willis, and later by Herzberg and Moore, was wrongly identified as the 21S - 21P transition. The correct line should be looked for at 9583.99 A. (Author)
