Abstract:Doppler-free transition frequencies for nub{4} and nub{5} hot bands in the band of C$_{2}$H$_{2}$ have been measured using saturation dip spectroscopy with an extended cavity diode laser referenced to a frequency comb. The frequency accuracy of the measured transitions, as judged from line shape model fits and the spectrometer stability, is better than 30 kHz. This is some 2-3 orders of magnitude improvement on the accuracy and precision of previous measurements of the line positions derived from the analysis of high-resolution Fourier transform infrared absorption spectra. The data were analyzed by determining the upper state energies, using known lower state level positions, and fitting them to a $J(J+1)$ polynomial expansion to identify perturbations. The results reveal that the upper rotational energy level structure is mostly regular but suffers $J-$localized perturbations causing level shifts between one and several hundred MHz. These perturbations are due to accidental near degeneracies with energy levels of the same $J$ and larger bending vibrational excitation. textbf{Acknowledgements}: We are most grateful to Prof. D.S Perry (U. of Akron) and Prof. M.
