Diatomic hydride and deuteride spectra of all the second row transition metals have been studied in absorption between 290 and 700 nm behind reflected shock waves. The first known spectra of ScH, ScD, VH, and VD have been identified, together with new spectra due to CoH, CoD, NiH, and NiD. Some new bands of CoD and NiD are analysed, and it is shown that an electronic isotope shift exists in NiD. The effect of such a shift on the determination of vibrational constants is discussed.

The calculated rovibronic spectrum of scandium hydride, ScH
The electronic structure of six low-lying electronic states of scandium hydride, X 1Σ+, a 3Δ, b 3Π, A 1Δ, c 3Σ+ and B 1Π, is studied using multi-reference configuration interaction as a function of
Laser photoelectron spectroscopy of CrH−, CoH−, and NiH−: Periodic trends in the electronic structure of the transition‐metal hydrides
The laser photoelectron spectra of CrH−, CoH−, and NiH− and the analogous deuterides are reported. The spectra are interpreted using a qualitative description of the electronic structure for the
Molecular bonding with scandium: Diatomics ScH, ScO, ScC, and ScN
The spectroscopic and chemical properties of some typical diatomics of scandium are calculated using a nonempirical HF pseudopotential and multireference single‐and‐double configuration interaction.
Vibration rotation spectroscopy of the CoH radical in its X3Φ4 ground state by CO-Faraday laser magnetic resonance
We present the first direct observation of the vibration rotation spectrum of the diatomic cobalt-hydride in its X 3Φ4 ground state by CO-Faraday laser magnetic resonance (L.M.R.) spectroscopy. The
First principles study of cobalt hydride, CoH, and its ions CoH+ and CoH-.
The authors' CoH calculated results are in accord with experiment, but there is an interesting discrepancy between theory and experiment concerning the dipole moment, the former being significantly larger than the latter.
The identification of the FeH2 radical in the gas phase by infrared spectroscopy
The FeH2 radical has been detected in the gas phase through the observation of transitions in the fundamental band of the antisymmetric stretching vibration ν3. The molecule was generated in an

The infrared spectrum of FeH2, studied in the gas phase by laser magnetic resonance
The infrared spectrum of the FeH2 radical in the gas phase has been studied in detail between 1605 and 1730 cm−1, by the technique of carbon monoxide laser magnetic resonance. The molecule is formed
Rotational structure of the 5300 AA band of titanium hydride, TiH
A partial analysis reveals two violet-degraded sub-bands having P, Q and R branches with P heads at 18576 and 18646 cm-1. The upper states are badly perturbed. Effective values of B" are 4.956 and
FSGO calculations of geometries and electronic structures of “argon-core” third-row hydrides
A series ofab initio calculations using the FSGO method and including geometry optimizations are reported for the lowest singlet states of KH, CaH2, ScH, ScH3, TiH4, VH3, CrH2, and MnH. Both core and

New bands with open but complex rotational structure have been obtained in the regions 4700-4800, 5030-5110 and 5210-5500 AA, in absorption behind reflected shock waves through titanium powder in
Band Spectrum of Chromium Hydride, CrH.
CONTINUING our investigations of the spectra of the hydrides of the transition elements, we have now observed a band in the region 3600–3700 A. when running a high-tension arc between chromium
Spectrum of Nickel Hydride
RECENTLY we have observed the spectrum obtained by introducing nickel carbonyl vapour into the flame of a Meker burner. Just above the blue-green cones, in the hottest part of the flame, we find a
Band Spectrum of Nickel Hydride: Bands at λ 5713, λ 6246 and λ 6424
The new system of bands discussed in this paper was obtained by one of the authors (A. G. G.) in an experiment to observe whether nickel gave an oxide band system similar to that of iron, which
A predissociation in the chromium hydride molecule
A predissociation of the upper electronic state (A) of the 3680 capital A, rinf transition in CrH is suggested to explain the weakness of the system at low pressures. The relatively stronger

Colour sensations produced by ultra-violet light
The sensations produced by extremely faint ultra-violet light on the dark-adapted retina are discussed; the behaviour is essentially similar to that in normal scotopic vision, the light appearing colourless and the peripheral region being more sensitive than the fovea.
