ABSTRACT In this paper, a new method on constructing analytical potential energy functions is pre-sented, and from this a analytical potential en-ergy function applied to both neutral diatomic molecules and charged diatomic molecular ions is obtained. This potential energy function in-cludes three dimensionless undetermined pa-rameters which can be determined uniquely by solving linear equations with the experimental spectroscopic parameters of molecules. The solutions of the dimensionless undetermined parameters are real numbers rather than com-plex numbers, this ensures that the analytical potential energy function has extensive uni-versality. Finally, the potential energy function is examined with four kinds of diatomic molecules or ions—homonuclear neutral diatomic mole-cule , and , homonuclear charged diatomic molecular ion , and , heter-nuclear neutral diatomic Molecule , and , heternuclear ch- arged diatomic Molecular ion , and ,as a conseque- nce, good results are obtained.
