Title
The self-associating behavior of $NH_{3}$ and $ND_{3}$ in liquid xenon

Abstract
 In this study we report on the analysis of isothermal spectra of NH3 and ND3 solutions in liquid xenon at 203 K using newly developed and validated least-squares approaches to investigate the its self associating behavior. For both species we observe clear dimer bands in the spectral area of the v(1)+v(4), v(3)+v(4) and v(1)+v(2), v(3)+v(2) combination bands. The analysis of the N-D stretching area, allows us to characterize clear contributions of dimers and trimers. The analysis of the N-H stretching area is hampered by the occurrence of a time dependent band due to solid water traces during the experiments. For NH3 we also performed an investigation of the N-H bending region, v(2), which demonstrated a small dimer absorption band. These obtained results compare well with literature data.
