Abstract:Studies of the bonding and electronic structure of simple actinide compounds\footnote{M. C. Heaven, B. J. Barker and I. O. Antonov, J. Phys. Chem. A, 2014, 118, 10867-10881.}\footnote{T. Steimle, D. L. Kokkin, S. Muscarella and T. Ma, J. Phys. Chem. A, 2015, 119, 9281-9285.}\footnote{C. Linton, A. G. Adam and T. C. Steimle, J. Chem. Phys., 2014, 140, 214305/214301-214305/214307.}\footnote{D. L. Kokkin, T. C. Steimle and D. DeMille, Phys. Rev. A: At., Mol., Opt. Phys., 2014, 90, 062503/062501-062503/062510.} are attractive because they provide insight into the chemistry of more complex molecules associated with radioactive waste. These molecules are the most effective venues for developing a synergism between theory and experiment. The primary goal of the present study is to understand and identify different levels of covalency in a series of gas phase actinides and lanthanides containing molecules via the determination of the permanent electric dipole moment, $\mu$, and magnetic g-factors. The electronic spectrum of ThF has been investigated using: a) medium resolution two dimensional (2D)\footnote{N. J. Reilly, T. W. Schmidt and S. H. Kable, J. Phys. Chem. A, 2006, 110, 12355-12359.}; ultrahigh field free, Stark, and Zeeman spectroscopy of a supersonically cooled molecular beam sample. A strong band system near 540 nm was detected and the Stark shifts and splitting were analyzed to produce $\mu$ values of 1.426(18)D and 0.586(30)D, for the X$^{2}$$\Delta$$_{3/2}$ and [18.5] $\Omega$=3/2 states, respectively. Zeeman splittings were analyzed to show that both the ground and excited [18.5] $\Omega$=3/2 states are predominately $^{2}$$\Delta$$_{3/2}$ spin-orbit components. A molecular orbital correlation diagram will be used to rationalize the observed very small $\mu$ values, the electronic state distribution, and garner insight into the bonding mechanism.
