Abstract : The photoelectron spectrum of NO (Turner and May 1966) is given a new interpretation in terms of electronic states of NO(+) belonging to configurations...(5 sigma)(2)(1 pi)(3)(2 pi). The close analogy with corresponding states of N2 and CO is pointed out. The long-known beta Rydberg series of absorption bands of NO is shown to converge towards...(5 sigma)(1 pi)(4)2 pi, (3) Pi, but no evidence can be found for the existence of an electronic state of NO(+) at the limit of the alpha series. The previously assumed Rydberg character of this series appears to be erroneous. (Author)
