- Properties of the O
_{2}molecule. AIMPRO values are obtained using the standard basis set described elsewhere in the thesis,*i.e.*six Gaussian fitting functions on each O atom for charge density, 24 for wavefunction, with three more Gaussian functions on the bond centre for charge density and two for the wavefunction. All non-AIMPRO values from [43]. - Parameters for Musgrave-Pople Potential for InP in

_{i}-O_{s}, the pre-cursor to O_{2i}V. All modes are in cm^{-1}, later columns show downwards shift as isotopes are changed as listed. - Theoretical and Experimental Properties of O

_{i}(cm^{-1}). Experimental results from References [153,154,77,155] (LHeT). Figures in square brackets are determined indirectly [155]. All except first row show the downward shift with change in isotope. Theoretical results are new to this work. The split in theoretical results are slight numerical variation due to cluster assymetry. Atomic motion associated with each mode is shown in Figure 6.3. - LVMs for the dimer (cm
^{-1}). Isotopic values show downwards shift for change in isotope. The assymetric dimer is more stable than the symmetric one by 0.259 eV. Where mixed isotope results are listed, the first isotope refers to the `inner' atom of the assymetric dimer. Calculated intensity is the dipole moment squared for the^{16}O case for the given mode, divided by that of the 921.3cm^{-1}mode. The `symmetric dimer' was not symmetry constrained and slight variations in position account for the difference between the^{16}O^{18}O and the^{18}O^{16}O values. - Natural dimer concentration as a function of temperature, T, or anneal time, t, assuming no dimer dissociation. Å. For variable temperature data anneal time is set to 1 hour, for variable anneal time the temperature is set to 450C. Also included is the equilibrium dimer concentration at various temperatures assuming a binding energy of 0.3 eV.
