Title:Analysis Of Bands Of The 405 Nm Electronic Transition Of C3ar
Author(s):Merer, Anthony
Contributor(s):Wang, Yi-Jen; Hsu, Yen-Chu
Abstract:Bands of the C$_3$Ar complex can be observed near almost all the bands of the \~{A}$^1\Pi_u$ - \~{X}$^1\Sigma^+_g$ transition of C$_3$. The strongest bands of C$_3$Ar form close-lying pairs. Rotational analyses have been carried out for the bands at 25025 and 25029 \wn (near the 02$^-$0-000 band of C$_3$) and 25426 and 25430 \wn (near the 04$^-$0-000 band). Each pair consists of a type A and a type C band of an asymmetric top, where the upper states interact by b-axis Coriolis coupling; this represents the lifting of the degeneracy of the $\Pi$ state in the lower symmetry of the complex. Only K = even lower state levels are found, showing that C$_3$Ar has the shape of a distorted letter T. The Ar atom lies 3.82 \AA \ from the centre of mass of the C$_3$ part. Emission spectra have been recorded and lifetimes measured for several C$_3$Ar upper state levels. The assignment of the emission bands is complicated by significant intramolecular relaxation in the upper states, which populates mainly the lowest level of each local potential minimum of the upper state; however the variation of the upper state well depth (binding energy) with vibrational quantum number can then be determined.
