The electronic spectra of XeNe molecules in the range of 77100-90100 cm-1 are measured by the method of laser resonance multiphoton ionization in a supersonic jet. The photoionization spectra are obtained upon twoand three-photon excitations of molecules and their ionization by the next photon. In the range of 80300-90100 cm-1 near Xe*(5d, 6p′, 6d, 7s, and 7p), the spectra are obtained for the first time. A whole number of vibrational systems are measured in this range. The majority of vibrational systems near Xe* (5d, 6d, 7p, and 7s) are located in the red range with respect to their dissociation limits. In the blue range with respect to the dissociation limits, continua corresponding to transitions of molecules from the ground state to repulsive potential curves of excited states are detected. For a number of excited states of XeNe molecules, the vibrational analysis is performed and molecular constants are estimated.
