Abstract:\begin{wrapfigure}{r}{0pt} \includegraphics[scale=0.2]{o2co.eps} \end{wrapfigure} FTMW spectroscopy has long been known to be a powerful tool in characterizing van der Waals complexes.\footnote{Stewart Novick, \textit{Bibliography of Rotational Spectra of Weakly Bound Complexes}} Along with this, advances in microwave technology and computing have made complicated spin-interaction systems much easier to observe and characterize. One such system, O$_2$-CO has been observed for the first time on a CP-FTMW spectrometer operational in the 6-18 GHz region. Preliminary observations and calculations indicate a slipped-parallel structure. High level calculations are ongoing, including the construction of a 4D potential energy surface. Rotational assignments, along with any observed fine structure due to the $^3\Sigma$ ground state of O$_2$ will be discussed.
