On the spin-orbit splitting of CuCl2 in its 2 Pi g ground state.


The spin-orbit splitting of CuCl(2) in its ground X(2)Pi(g) state remains an unknown or, at best, poorly defined quantity. The electronic spectrum of CuCl(2) has been studied by Fourier transform resolved, laser-induced fluorescence between 602 and 587 nm, in an attempt to identify transitions to the upper spin component of the ground state. In order to… (More)
