IN recent years there has been renewed interest in the spectrum of AlO. The well-known very strong blue-green (A2σ–X2σ, ground-state) system has been re-investigated1,2, and the ultra-violet system (B2Π–X2σ) has also been the subject of new investigations3.

The dissociation energy of aluminium monoxide
The absorption spectrum of AlO has been observed in the wavelength region 2000-3000 A using a shock tube. Discrete band absorption and continuous absorption were observed. It is suggested that the
Rotational analysis of the C2Σ+ — X2Σ+ system of AlO
The 2-0, 1-0, 0-0 and 0-1 bands of the C2Σ+-X2Σ+ system of AlO, lying at 2391.88 Å, 2438.35 Å, 2487.32 Å and 2548.51 Å respectively were excited in a low pressure arc and photographed on a 6.6-metre
