In this report, we describe the rotationally resolved fluorescence excitation spectra of the S$_1$$\leftarrow$S$_0$ origin bands of the single argon atom complexes of 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8-hexahydropyrene. Analysis of the spectra provides information about the geometries of both conformers of the bare molecule and their argon complexes in both electronic states. The equilibrium positions of the argon atom in both conformers will be discussed. en_US dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title HIGH RESOLUTION ELECTRONIC SPECTROSCOPY OF THE ARGON VAN DER WAALS COMPLEXES OF 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8-HEXAHYDROPYRENE IN THE GAS PHASE. en_US dc.type Article en_US
