Abstract: The $0^{0}_{0}$ and $3^{0}_{1}$ band systems of the $\tilde{A} ^{2}A_{1}\leftarrow \tilde{X} ^{2}A_{1}$ transition of $YC_{2}$ were recorded in high resolution using laser-induced fluorescence on molecules produced in a molecular beam. Asymetry splittings in the $\tilde{X} ^{2}A_{1}$ state were measured by recording the optical spectrum in the presence of a weak static electric $field^{a}$. Several pure rotational transitions were also recorded in the $(0,0,0) \tilde{X} ^{2}A_{1}$ vibronic state using pump/probe microwave optical double resonance spectroscopy. The three sets of parameters were combined to produce fine and hyperfine parameters for the $\tilde{A}$ and $\tilde{X}$ states. Rotational constants and structural parameters were determined for both electronic states by fitting the combined data sets to an effective hamiltonian for a rigid molecule. An interpretation of the fine structure parameters will be given.
