The intermolecular charge-transfer transitions between molecular halogens, X2, and Xe can be observed in UV spectra of X2:Xe liquid solutions (X2 = F2, Cl2, Br2). In all cases the spectra occur near the UV cutoff of the spectrometer (187 nm). The absorption coefficients at 200 nm are 6.9 × 10-18,1.2 × 10-18, and 2.0 × 10-17 cm2 for Xe:F2, Xe:Cl2, and Xe:Br2, respectively. Implications with respect to one-photon- and two-photon-induced cooperative photoproduction of rare gas halides in gas and condensed phases are discussed.
