Unstable Diatomic Molecule
In a diatomic molecule, the interaction between the atoms depends on their electronic configuration. It is conceivable that a molecule is stable if one of the atoms is electronically excited, and unstable if both atoms are in their ground state. We study here such a scheme, and we focus in particular on the dissociation of the molecule when the initially excited atom decays to its ground state.
