In this paper, we consider the one-dimensional anharmonic oscillator, which represents well the anharmonic vibrations in diatomic molecules. For the description of the associate potential we use the Morse potential, which gives a good approximation of the experimentally observed vibrational modes of molecules and hence contributes to the realistic description of the spectrum of diatomic molecules. The generalized and Gaussian coherent states are thus constructed and compared in terms of the localization of the particle in those states. We apply these results to the example of the sodium chloride molecule, 1H35Cl.
