Title: High resolution spectral analysis of oxygen. IV. Energy levels, partition sums, band constants, RKR potentials, Franck-Condon factors involving the X{sup 3}Σ{sub g}{sup −}, a{sup 1}Δ{sub g} and b{sup 1}Σ{sub g}{sup +} states

We have updated the isotopically invariant Dunham fit of O{sub 2} with newly reported literature transitions to derive (1) the energy levels, partition sums, band-by-band molecular constants, and RKR potentials for the X{sup 3}Σ{sub g}{sup −}, a{sup 1}Δ{sub g}, and b{sup 1}Σ{sub g}{sup +} states of the six O{sub 2} isotopologues: {sup 16}O{sup 16}O, {sup 16}O{sup 17}O, {sup 16}O{sup 18}O, {sup 17}O{sup 17}O, {sup 17}O{sup 18}O, and {sup 18}O{sup 18}O; (2) Franck-Condon factors for their a{sup 1}Δ{sub g}−X{sup 3}Σ{sub g}{sup −}, b{sup 1}Σ{sub g}{sup +}−X{sup 3}Σ{sub g}{sup −}, and a{sup 1}Δ{sub g}−b{sup 1}Σ{sub g}{sup +} band systems. This new spectroscopic parameterization characterizes all known transitions within and between the X{sup 3}Σ{sub g}{sup −}, a{sup 1}Δ{sub g}, and b{sup 1}Σ{sub g}{sup +} states within experimental uncertainty and can be used for accurate predictions of as yet unmeasured transitions. All of these results are necessary to provide a consistent linelist of all transitions which will be reported in a followup paper.
