Abstract:Yttrium (II) oxide (YO) is one of the first molecules that have been laser-cooled. Although the laser-cooling cycle in the reported experiment\footnote{ M. T. Hummon, M. Yeo, B. K. Stuhl, A. L. Collopy, Y. Xia, and J. Ye, \emph{Phys. Rev. Lett.} \textbf{110}, 143001 (2013) } involves the $\tilde A ^2 \Pi_{1/2} - \tilde X ^2 \Sigma ^+$ (0, 0) transition, ``dark’’ electronic states such as $\tilde A$'$^2 \Delta_{3/2}$ also play important roles and directly affect the cooling efficiency. Moreover, the forbidden $\tilde A$'$^2 \Delta_{3/2} - \tilde X ^2 \Sigma ^+$ transition can be utilized for further cooling of YO molecules.\footnote{ A. L Collopy, M. T Hummon, M. Yeo, B. Yan, and Jun Ye, \emph{New J. Phys.} \textbf{17}, 055008 (2015) } To better understand the ro-vibronic structure of YO, we have obtained and analyzed the cavity ring-down (CRD) spectrum of the $\tilde A ^2 \Pi_{3/2, 1/2} - \tilde X ^2 \Sigma ^+$ (0, 0) transition of jet-cooled YO molecules. Detection of the $\tilde A$'$^2 \Delta - \tilde X ^2 \Sigma ^+$ (0, 0) transition is in process. We will discuss experimental measures that will be taken to further improve the signal-to-noise ratio for the pursuit of “dark”-state spectra of YO and other candidate molecules for laser cooling.
