Optical observation of the 3sσgF³Πu Rydberg state of N₂

Sprengers, J. P; Reinhold, E; Ubachs, W; Lewis, B. R; Baldwin, Kenneth


Using ultrahigh-resolution 1 XUV+1 UV two-photon ionization laser spectroscopy, the F (3)Pi(u)<--X (1)Sigma(g) (+)(0,0) transition of N(2) has been optically observed for the first time, and the 3s sigma(g)F (3)Pi(u)(upsilon=0) Rydberg level fully characterized with rotational resolution. The experimental spectroscopic parameters and predissociation level widths suggest strong interactions between the F state and the 3p pi(u)G (3)Pi(u) Rydberg and C(') (3)Pi(u) valence states, analogous to...[Show more]
