have attracted much attention over many years. Compared with extensive investigations of sulfur compounds, there are a few studies on the spectroscopic and transition properties of S
_{2}
^{+}
cation.
Early in 1975, Berkowitz
et al
.
13
observed the photo-electron spectra of S
_{2}
and Te
_{2}
. Based on the single ionization spectrum of S
_{2}
, they identified the X

et al

also observed the He(I) photoelectron spectra of S

, and fitted the spectroscopic parameters of the five electronic states of S

. Later on, Tsuji
et al
.

made a vibrational analysis of the A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
-X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
transition in S
_{2}
^{+}
. Subsequently, rotational analysis of the S
_{2}

(A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
-X

∏
_{g}
) emission band was reported by Capel
et al
.

and Brabaharan
et al
..
15
Recently, the A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
-X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
emission spectrum of S
_{2}
^{+}
was observed through microwave discharge of CS
_{2}
or sulfur vapor in solid neon,
7
and photolysis of an H
_{2}
S
_{2}
/Ar matrix in solid argon,
8
respec-tively.
However, to the best of our knowledge, only a few theore-tical studies were made to investigate the spectroscopic properties of S
_{2}
^{+}
cation. In 1989, the total energy and bond length of the ground state X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
of S
_{2}
^{+}
are calculated by Balaban
et al
.
10
using
ab initio
method. Recently, Grant
et al
.
11
investigated the electronic structure of the ground state for S
_{2}
^{+}
by employing the CCSD(T) theory. The potential energy curve (PEC) of the ground state for S
_{2}
^{+}
was extra-polated to the complete basis set (CBS) by utilizing syste-matic sequences of correlation-consistent basis sets with an exponential function. Nevertheless, the previously available theoretical calculations are not enough to illuminate the spectroscopic properties of low-lying excited electronic states of S
_{2}
^{+}
cation.
In the present study, we performed
ab initio
calculations on the low-lying electronic states of S
_{2}
^{+}
. The core-valence correlation and scalar relativistic (mass-velocity and Darwin term) corrections were taken into account. The PECs of 5 Λ-S states (X

_{u}
, b
^{4}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
, and B
^{2}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
) were cal-culated with high-level multireference methods. In order to eliminate errors due to the incomplete basis set, the PECs were computed with a series of correlation-consistent basis sets and extrapolated to the CBS limit. On the basis of PECs of the bound Λ–S and Ω electronic states, the spectroscopic constants of the bound states were determined by numeri-cally solving the nuclear-motion Schrödinger equations. Finally, the transition dipole moment (TDM) and the radia-tive lifetime of A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
were obtained. The spin-orbit coupling (SOC) effect was included in computations on transition properties of X
^{2}
∏
_{g}

Methods and Computational Details.
In the present work, the electronic structure computations were performed with MOLPRO 2010 quantum chemical package designed by Werner
et al
..

The point group of the S
_{2}
^{+}
cation is
D_{∞h}
. Nevertheless, owing to the limit of the MOLPRO procedure, all of the computations were carried out in the
D_{2v}
subgroup of the
D_{∞h}
point group. The correlating relationships for the irreducible representations of the
D_{∞h}
and
D_{2v}
are ∑

^{2}
∑

electronic states of S
_{2}
^{+}
were cal-culated through the complete active space self-consistent field (CASSCF) method.
17
18
In the CASSCF computations, active space was made up of eight MOs: two A
_{g}
, one B
_{3u}
, one B
_{2u}
, two B
_{1u}
, one B
_{2g}
, one B
_{3g}
symmetric MOs. The 3s3p valence electrons of S were placed into the active space. The other twenty electrons of S
_{2}
^{+}
were distributed into the closed orbitals,
i.e
., three A
_{g}
, one B
_{3u}
, one B
_{2u}
, three B
_{1u}
, one B
_{2g}
, and one B
_{3g}
symmetric MOs, which correspond to inner-shell orbitals 1s2s2p of S. Furthermore, all configurations in the configuration interaction (CI) expansions of the CASSCF wave functions were used as reference for inter-nally contracted multireference configuration interaction method
19
(MRCI) and MRCI with the Davidson correction (MRCI+Q).
20
Additionally, the core-valence (CV) corre-lation induced by
n
= 2 orbital of S atom was estimated by combining the MRCI+Q method and the aug-cc-pwCVQZ basis set.
^{21}
The 1s core orbital of sulfur atom was excluded in CV computations. In order to improve the quality of spectroscopic constants, the scalar relativistic effect was taken into account
via
the second-order Douglas-Kroll-Hess (DKH) one-electron integrals in the PECs calculations. The scalar relativistic effect (denoted as DK) was produced by the difference between the energies with DKH and without DKH using an aug-cc-pVQZ-dk
^{22}
basis set at the MRCI+Q level. The sensitivity of calculated electronic states to the basis set was investigated by using a series of correlation consistent basis sets (aug-cc-pV(
n
+ d)Z,
n
= Q(4), 5, 6).
^{23}
For the sake of brevity, the basis set is abbreviated to aVnZ. The dynamical correlation energy was extrapolated to the CBS limit by
n
^{−3}
extrapolation formula
^{24-27}
with
n
= Q, 5.
The SOC was calculated by employing the state inter-action method with the full Breit-Pauli (BP) operator,
28
which means that the spin-orbit eigenstates are determined by diagonalizing
in the basis eigenfunctions of
On the basis of PECs obtained by MRCI + Q/CBS + CV + DK + SOC level, we then solved the nuclear-motion Schrödinger equations utilizing the numerical integration LEVEL program
29
designed by Le Roy to obtain the corre-sponding vibrational wave functions, vibrational energy levels, Franck-Condon factors (FCFs), and spectroscopic constants.
Spectroscopic Parameters.
In order to obtain more accurate PECs, the point spacing interval of the calculated electronic states was 0.05 Å for
R
= 1.3-2.4 Å, 0.1 Å for
R
= 2.5-4.0 Å, and 0.5 Å for
R
= 4.5-6.0 Å.
Table 1
lists the calculated parameters of S
_{2}
^{+}
, including adiabatic transition energies
T_{e}
, vibrational constants (
ω_{e}
and
ω_{e}x_{e}
), rotational constants
B_{e}
, and equilibrium distances
R_{e}
. In
Table 1
, the spectroscopic constants were evaluated with the MRCI method utilizing the AVQZ and aV5Z basis sets.
Table 1
also lists the previously available experimental results. Compared with previous accurate experimental results,
15
the
ω_{e}
,
ω_{e}x_{e}
,
B_{e}
, and
R_{e}
of X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
and A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
states evaluated with the AVQZ basis set are accurate with deviations of 50.961, 0.5905, 0.0453 cm
^{−1}
, and 0.0131 Å, but the spectroscopic constants of the two states evaluated with the AV5Z basis set are accurate to within 9.65, 0.0768, 0.00275 cm
^{−1}
, and 0.0114 Å, respectively. For A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
state, the
T
_{e}
value cal-culated with the AVQZ basis set differs from experimental result15 by 331.63 cm
^{−1}
, and the
T_{e}
value calculated with the AV5Z basis set is only 307.25 cm
^{−1}
larger than experimental data.
15
On the whole, the spectroscopic parameters obtained by the AV5Z basis set are more accurate. Thus, we use the AV5Z basis set to calculate the Davidson correction (MRCI+Q).
Table 1
also lists the spectroscopic parameters derived from the PECs including CV and DK effects. As shown in
Table 1
, the
T_{e}
values of a

_{u}
, A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
, b
^{4}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
, and B
^{2}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
states obtained with the MRCI+Q method are 17817.16, 22013.82, 30773.25, and 38898.84 cm
^{−1}
, respectively, which are 228.07, 638.88, 716.91, and 900.67 cm
^{−1}
smaller than those calculated by the MRCI method. When only the core-valence correlation correction is taken into account in the present MRCI+Q calculations,
T_{e}
is increased by 157.00, 526.03, 464.99, and 547.14 cm
^{−1}
for a

∏

∏

, b
^{4}
∑
^{−}

, and B
^{2}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
states, respectively;
ω_{e}
is increased by 6.79, 4.31, 7.14, 3.93, and 5.20 cm
^{−1}
for X
^{2}
∏

∏
_{u}
, b
^{4}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
, and B
^{2}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
states, respectively. When only the relativistic correction is taken into account in the present MRCI+Q calculations, the influence of DK correction on the spectroscopic constants is evidently smaller than that with the core-valence correlation correction. For example, the DK correction makes the values of
T_{e}
shift only by 86.38, 116.74, 106.52, and 79.06 cm
^{−1}
for a
^{4}
∏

∏
_{u}
, b
^{4}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
, and B
^{2}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
states, respectively. Even though the influence of the DK correction on spectroscopic cons-tants is relatively small, it cannot be omitted in high-level
ab initio
computations.
By incorporating the Davidson correction as well as the CV and DK corrections into the present study, we calculate the spectroscopic constants which agree very well with the previous experimental values.

For instance, the differ-ences between our calculated

of the A
^{2}
∏

state and the experimental values
8
15
are 107.58-333.03 cm

. Regarding the vibrational frequencies of X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
and A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
, our calculated values of
ω_{e}
and
ω_{e}x_{e}
differ by less than 10.33 and 0.0461 cm

from the accurate experimental results.

For the rotational constants of X

Compared with the experimental values,
14
15
the calculated results of

of the two states are accurate, only with deviations of less than 0.0061 Å.

Table 2
lists spectroscopic constants obtained from MRCI+Q PECs at aV5Z and CBS levels. Compared with spectro-scopic constants determined by the MRCI+Q/aV5Z calcu-lations, the extrapolation to the CBS limit (excluding the CV and DK effects) makes
T_{e}
increase by 246.03, 230.27, 190.71, and 173.39 cm
^{−1}
for a

, b
^{4}
∑
^{−}

, and B
^{2}
∑
^{−}

states, respectively. Compared with spectro-scopic constants determined at the MRCI+Q/aV5Z+CV+DK level, the extra-polation to the CBS limit makes
T_{e}
increase by 558.21, 543.86, 503.4, and 489.04 cm
^{−1}
, respectively, for a

∏

state, the
T_{e}
obtained by the MRCI+Q/CBS+CV+DK calculations is larger than previously available experimental data
15
by 651.44 cm
^{−1}
, the deviations of
ω_{e}
,
ω_{e}x_{e}
,
B_{e}
, and
R_{e}
determined at the MRCI+Q/CBS+CV+DK level from the experimental values
14
15
are only 6.185 cm
^{−1}
, 0.0503 cm
^{−1}
, 0.00035 cm
^{−1}
, and 0.0015 Å, respectively. As to the X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
state, the deviations of
ω_{e}
,
ω_{e}x_{e}
,
B_{e}
, and
R_{e}
determined by the MRCI+Q/CBS+CV+DK calculations from the experimental values
14
15
are also only 2.651 cm
^{−1}
, 0.014 cm
^{−1}
, 0.000826 cm

, and 0.0022 Å, respectively. Our calculated
ω_{e}
,
ω_{e}x_{e}
, and
R_{e}
of X

state are 808.75 cm
^{−1}
, 3.4111 cm

, and 1.8217 Å, respectively, which also agree well with those of previous theoretical values
11
of 816.9 cm
^{−1}
, 3.1 cm
^{−1}
, 1.8240 Å. In comparison to previous experimental and theoretical results,
14
15
we can conclude that the spectroscopic constants determined by the MRCI+Q/CBS+CV+DK calculations are more accurate, even if the spectroscopic constants obtained by the MRCI+Q/AV5Z+CV+DK calculation also agree well with experi-mental data. Additionally, the spectroscopic constants for a
^{4}
∏
_{u}
, b
^{4}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
, and B
^{2}
∑
^{−}
_{g}
states have not been measured in experiments. However, we believe that the spectroscopic constants of these states are also accurate owing to the good consistence with experimental results for the X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
and A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
states.

Effect of Spin-Orbit Coupling on PECs of X^{2}∏_{g} and A^{2}∏_{u} States.
The SOC effect generally results in the splitt-ing of multiplet electronic states. The spin-orbit splitting of the X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
and A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
states has been determined experi-mentally
6
utilizing a rotational analysis of the A-X emission band.
Table 3
lists the spectroscopic constants of the X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
and A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
states determined by the MRCI+Q/CBS+CV+DK calculations including the SOC effect. The calculated spin-orbit splitting of the X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
and A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
states are 425.61 and 23.39 cm
^{−1}
, respectively, which are in reasonable agreement with experimental data of 469.7 ± 2.3 and 13.5 ± 2.7 cm
^{−1}
.
6
For the X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
state, the modifications caused by the SOC effect are only 0.23 cm
^{−1}
, −0.0063 cm
^{−1}
, 0 cm
^{−1}
, and 0 Å, for spectroscopic constants
ω_{e}
,
ω_{e}x_{e}
,
B_{e}
, and
R_{e}
, respectively. For the A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
state, the modifications caused by the SOC effect are only 0.14 cm
^{−1}
, −0.0058 cm
^{−1}
, 0 cm
^{−1}
, 0 Å, and 55.89 cm
^{−1}
for these spectroscopic parameters, respectively. According to the above discussion, we can conclude that the SOC effect cannot bring obvious modification to the spectro-scopic parameters of X

Transition Dipole Moment and Radiative Lifetime of A^{2}∏_{u} State.
The electronic transition dipole moment (TDM) function of the A

_{u}
-X
^{2}
∏
_{g}
as a function of the internuclear distance and PECs of the two states are plotted in
Figure 1
. It is found from
Figure 1
. that the TDM increases monotonously as the internuclear distance increases from 1.35 to 6.0 Å, and equals 0.29 a. u. (1 a. u. = 2.542 Debye) at the equilibrium distance of the A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
state. On the basis of the PECs obtained by the MRCI+Q/CBS+CV+DK+SOC calculations, we evaluated the spectroscopic constants, vib-rational wave functions, and vibrational energy levels of X

and A
^{2}
∏
_{u}
. The spectroscopic constants of the two states have been analyzed in above Section, and vibrational level G(ν), vibration-dependent rotational constant B

Table 4
. For the X

from experimental values
15
are only 30.4023 cm

, respectively. For the A

from experimental values
15
are only 56.1679 cm

ν
) and B
_{ν}
of the X

∏

) to the vibrational level ν′ = 0-6 of the lower ground state (X
