Title: High-resolution laser spectroscopy and magnetic effect of the B{sup ~2}E′ ← X{sup ~2}A{sub 2}′ transition of {sup 14}NO{sub 3} radical

Rotationally resolved high-resolution fluorescence excitation spectra of {sup 14}NO{sub 3} radical have been observed for the 662 nm band, which is assigned as the 0–0 band of the B{sup ~2}E′ ←X{sup ~2}A{sub 2}′ transition, by crossing a single-mode laser beam perpendicularly to a collimated molecular beam. More than 3000 rotational lines were detected in 15 070–15 145 cm{sup −1} region, but it is difficult to find the rotational line series. Remarkable rotational line pairs, whose interval is about 0.0246 cm{sup −1}, were found in the observed spectrum. This interval is the same amount with the spin-rotation splitting of the X{sup ~2}A{sub 2}′ (υ = 0, k = 0, N = 1) level. From this interval and the observed Zeeman splitting up to 360 G, seven line pairs were assigned as the transitions to the {sup 2}E′{sub 3/2} (J′ = 1.5) levels and 15 line pairs were assigned as the transitions to the {sup 2}E′{sub 1/2} (J′ = 0.5) levels. From the rotational analysis, we recognized that the {sup 2}E′ state splits into {sup 2}E′{sub 3/2} and {sup 2}E′{sub 1/2} by the spin-orbit interaction and the effective spin-orbit interaction constant was roughly estimated as –21 cm{sup −1}. From the number of the rotationalmore » line pairs, we concluded that the complicated rotational structure of this 662 nm band of {sup 14}NO{sub 3} mainly owes to the vibronic interaction between the B{sup ~2}E′ state and the dark A{sup ~2}E″ state through the a{sub 2}″ symmetry vibrational mode.« less
