Abstract: The rotational spectra of $KrCuX (X=F,Cl)$ have been observed using high resolution Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy. The molecules were made using laser-ablation of a copper rod in the presence of a halide precursor contained in krypton gas. These molecules were stabilized using a supersonic jet into the cavity of the spectrometer. The measurements allowed the determination of rotational constants and centrifugal distortion constants $(B_{0}, D_{0})$ to high precision. The different isotopomers that were observed permitted the determination of the Kr-Cu and Cu-X distances. The nuclear quadrupole coupling constants for Cu, Cl and $^{83}Kr$ were measured. The results have been supported by ab initio calculations.
