Summary

The formation of NaNe molecule has been detected in a hollow cathode lamp containing traces of sodium and neon using the optogalvanic technique. Two broad continuum peaks have been observed in the structure. They have been analysed to result due to transitions {nA(3s) + Ne(2p 6)}2 Σ + → → {Na*(3p) + Ne(2p 6)}2 Π, 2 Σ and {nA*(3p + Ne(2p 6)}2 Π,2 Σ → {Na*(5s) + + Ne(2p 6)}2 Σ +. A third peak in between these is probably due to a two-photon transition from 3s→5s of Na in NaNe.
