Abstract

Precise calculations on two sets of molecules are performed to determine their sensitivity to changes in the fine structure constant and the proton-to-electron mass ratio. Variations in these fundamental constants might provide clues as to what lies beyond the Standard Model. CC and CI methods are used up to CCSD(T) level and d-aug-dyall.v4z basis sets. Absolute enhancement factors up to 4×103 cm−1 for α and -1×105 cm−1 for µ are reported. The Cl+ 2 , O+ 2 , Ge+ 2 and As+ 2 molecules are advised strongly for experiment.
