This weakening is attributed to predissociation and an upper limit of 45 380 $cm^{-1}$ is obtained for $D_{e}$, the ground state dissociation energy. Also the $D^{2}\Sigma$ state of NS is seen for the first time in absorption. en_US dc.format.extent 72991 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title PREDISSOCIATION IN THE $C^{2}\Sigma^{+}$ STATE OF NS en_US dc.type article en_US
