Title Spectroscopic studies of jet-cooled CuAg
Date 1991
Description Resonant two-photon ionization spectroscopy has been applied to jet-cooled diatomic CuAg. Four band systems have been observed, three of which have been rotationally resolved and analyzed. The ground state is X ??+ in symmetry, deriving from the 3d??cu4d??Ag?? molecular configuration. Its bond length has been determined as ro = 2.3735 ? 0.0006 ? (1? error limits). Based on an analysis of the possible separated atom limits, three of the excited states observed (A0+, A?1, and B?0+) are assigned as primarily 3d?cu4d??Ag???* in character. The observation of unusually large electronic isotope shifts in the A-X, A ?-X, and B ?-X band systems, similar in magnitude to those previously observed in the A-X and B-X systems of Cu?, and the s?d excitations in atomic copper, provides further confirmation that these excited states derive from the 3d?Cu4d??Ag ???* molecular configuration. Finally, the highest energy state observed in this work is argued to be primarily ion pair in character, and is expected to have significant contributions from both the Cu + Ag - and Cu - Ag + ion pair states.
