We describe a two-laser experiment using optical-optical double resonance fluorescence and Autler-Townes (AT) splittings to determine the NaK 3 (1)Pi-->1(X)(1)Sigma(+), 2(A)(1)Sigma(+) absolute transition dipole moment functions. Resolved 3 (1)Pi-->A (1)Sigma(+) and 3 (1)Pi-->X (1)Sigma(+) fluorescence was recorded with the frequencies of a titanium-sapphire laser (L1) and a ring dye laser (L2) fixed to excite particular 3 (1)Pi(upsilon = 19,J = 11,f)<--A (1)Sigma(+)(upsilon('),J(') = J = 11,e… CONTINUE READING
