ADC_Keywords: Atomic physics Keywords: molecular data ; molecular processes Abstract: The c3Πu state of the hydrogen molecule has the second largest triplet-state excitation cross-section, and plays an important role in the heating of the upper thermospheres of outer planets by electron excitation. Precise energies of the H2, D2, and HD c3Πu-(v,N) levels are calculated from highly accurate ab initio potential energy curves that include relativistic, radiative, and empirical non-adiabatic corrections. The emission yields are determined from predissociation rates and refined radiative transition probabilities. The excitation function and excitation cross-section of the c3Πu state are extracted from previous theoretical calculations and experimental measurements. The emission cross-section is determined from the calculated emission yield and the extracted excitation cross-section. The kinetic energy (Ek) distributions of H atoms produced via the predissociation of the c3Πu state, the c3Πu--b3Σu+ dissociative emission by the magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole, and the c3Πu-a3Σg+-b3Σu+ cascade dissociative emission by the electric dipole are obtained. The predissociation of the c3Πu+ and c3Πu- states both produce H(1s) atoms with an average Ek of ∼4.1eV/atom, while the c3Πu--b3Σu+ dissociative emissions by the magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole give an average Ek of ∼1.0 and ∼0.8eV/atom, respectively. The c3Πu-a3Σg+-b3Σu+ cascade and dissociative emission gives an average Ek of ∼1.3 eV/atom. On average, each H2 excited to the c3Πu state in an H2-dominated atmosphere deposits ∼7.1eV into the atmosphere while each H2 directly excited to the a3Σg+ and d3Πu states contribute ∼2.3 and ∼3.3eV, respectively, to the atmosphere. The spectral distribution of the calculated continuum emission arising from the X1Σg+-c3Πu excitation is significantly different from that of direct a3Σg+ or d3Πu excitations. File Summary:
