Testing the mass-scaling relations in the a 3 P state of 12 C 18 O and 13 C 16 O

Electronic spectra of the aP–XR (0–0) and (1–0) bands of CO, and the (1–0) band of CO are measured by cavity ring-down spectroscopy in the 200 nm region. The experimental spectra are analyzed using the molecular constants predicted by mass-scaling relations. It is found that the mass-scaling rules for the aP state can be used to predict the transition… CONTINUE READING
