Title: Fourier-transform spectroscopy of (4){sup 1}Σ{sup +} → A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} − b {sup 3}Π, A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} − b {sup 3}Π → X{sup 1}Σ{sup +}, and (1){sup 3} Δ{sub 1} → b{sup 3}Π{sub 0±} transitions in KCs and deperturbation treatment of A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} and b {sup 3}Π states

High resolution Fourier-transform spectroscopy data of term values in the spin-orbit (SO) coupled first excited A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} and b{sup 3}Π{sub 0±} states in KCs were obtained from (4){sup 1}Σ{sup +} → A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} − b {sup 3}Π, A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} − b {sup 3}Π → X{sup 1}Σ{sup +}, and (1){sup 3}Δ{sub 1} → b{sup 3}Π{sub 0±} spectra of laser-induced fluorescence (LIF). About 3000 new rovibronic term values of the A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} and b {sup 3}Π{sub Ω} states were obtained with an uncertainty about 0.01 cm{sup −1} and added to the previously obtained 3439 term values in Kruzins et al. [Phys. Rev. A 81, 042509 (2010)] and 30 term values of the b {sup 3}Π{sub 0{sup +}} state levels below the A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} state in Tamanis et al. [Phys. Rev. A 82, 032506 (2010)]. The data field was extended considerably, going down to vibrational level v{sub b} = 0 and up in energy to 13 814 cm{sup −1}, as compared to previously achieved v{sub b} = 14 and E = 13 250 cm{sup −1}. Overall 6431 e-symmetry term values of {sup 39}K{sup 133}Cs were included in 4 × 4 coupled-channel deperturbation analysis. The analytical Morse-Long-Range (MLR) function yielded empirical diabatic potentials for themore » A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} and b {sup 3}Π{sub 0{sup +}} states while the morphing of the SO ab initio points [J. T. Kim et al., J. Mol. Spectrosc. 256, 57 (2009)] provided the empirical diagonal and off-diagonal SO functions. Overall 98.5% of the fitted term values were reproduced with a rms (root mean square) uncertainty of 0.004 cm{sup −1}. The reliability of the model is proved by a good agreement of predicted and measured term values of the {sup 41}K{sup 133}Cs isotopologue, as well as of measured and calculated intensities of (4){sup 1}Σ{sup +} → A {sup 1}Σ{sup +} − b {sup 3}Π LIF progressions. Direct-potential-fit of low-lying v{sub b} levels of the b {sup 3}Π{sub 0{sup −}} component yielded the MLR potential which represents the 204 f-symmetry experimental term values with a rms uncertainty of 0.002 cm{sup −1}. The Ω-doubling of the b {sup 3}Π{sub 0} sub-state demonstrates a pronounced v{sub b}-dependent increase.« less
