Abstract:Taking advantage of our sensitive laser spectrometer coupled to a pulsed slit jetfootnote{P. Asselin, Y. Berger, T. R. Huet, R. Motiyenko, L. Margulès, R. J. Hendricks, M. R. Tarbutt, S. Tokunaga, B. Darquié, PCCP 19, 4576 (2017),} we recorded near the nub{2} vibration a series of rovibrational transitions of the chem{NH_3-Ar} van der Waals (vdW) complex. These transitions involve in the ground vibrational state several internal rotor states corresponding to the orthochem{NH_3} and parachem{NH_3} spin modifications of the complex. They are labeled by $Sigma$$_{a}$(j,k), $Sigma$$_{s}$(j,k), $Pi$$_{a}$(j,k) and $Pi$$_{s}$(j,k) where $Sigma$(K=0) and $Pi$(K=1) indicate the projection K of the total rotational angular momentum J on the vdW axis, the superscripts s and a designate a symmetric or antisymmetric chem{NH_3} inversion wave function, and j, k quantum numbers indicate the correlation between the internal-rotor state of the complex and the j, k rotational state of the free chem{NH_3} monomer. Five bands have been identified, only one of which was partly observed beforefootnote{G. T. Fraser, A.S. Pine and W. A. Kreiner, J. Chem. Phys. 94, 7061 (1991).}. They include transitions starting from the $Sigma$$_{a}$(j=0 or j=1) state without any internal angular momentum, consequently they can be assigned from the band contour of a linear-molecule-like K=0, $Delta$J=1 transition. The energies and splittings of the rovibrational levels of the $nub{2}=1$$leftarrow$0 spectrum derived from the analysis of the $Pi$$_{s}$, $Sigma$$_{s}$(j=1)$leftarrow$ $Sigma$$_{a}$(j=0), k=0 bands and mostly of the $Sigma$$_{s}$, $Pi$$_{s}$ and $Sigma$$_{a}$(j=1)$leftarrow$$Sigma$$_{a}$(j=1), k=1 bands bring relevant information about the nub{2} dependence of the chem{NH_3-Ar} interaction, the rovibrational dynamics of the chem{NH_3-Ar} complex and provide a sensitive test of a recently developed 4D potential energy surface that includes explicitly its dependence on the umbrella motionfootnote{J. Loreau, J. Liévin, Y. Scribano and A. van der Avoird, J. Chem. Phys. 141, 224303 (2014).}.
