We report on the observation of magnetic dipole allowed transitions in the well-characterized A (2)Σ(+) - X (2)Π band system of the OH radical. A Stark decelerator in combination with microwave Rabi spectroscopy is used to control the populations in selected hyperfine levels of both Λ-doublet components of the X (2)Π(3/2), v = 0, J = 3/2 ground state. Theoretical calculations presented in this Communication predict that the magnetic dipole transitions in the A (2)Σ(+), v = 1 ← X (2)Π, v = 0… CONTINUE READING
