LIFETIMES OF PREDISSOCIATIVE AND RADIATIVE DECAYS IN THE e$^3¥Sigma_u^+$ AND d$^3¥Pi_u^-$ STATES OF H$_2$ AND D$_2$ Tatsuro Kiyoshima$¥ast$, Sugiya Sato$¥ast$, Sergey O.Adamson$¥sharp$, Elena.A.Pazyuk$¥sharp$ and Andrey V.Stolyarov$¥sharp$ $¥ast$Nippon Institute of Technology, Saitama, Japan $¥sharp$Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia A comparison between experimental and theoretical lifetimes for rovibronic e$^3¥Sigma_u^+$ and d$^3¥Pi_u^-$ states of H$_2$ and D$_2$ is presented. A delayed coincidence method was used to lifetime measurement. The non-adiabatic radial coupling matrix elements and transition dipole moment functions were derived by a direct ab initio and a quantum defect calculations.
