B. Davies, B.J. Hardy, E.K. Murray Lloyd and D.K. Russell, Mol. Phys. 36, 1005 (1978). en_US dc.description Author Institution: en_US dc.description.abstract Vibration-rotation transitions have been observed in the $^{2}\Pi_{3/2}$ component of the ground electronic state of SD. The radical was produced by passing D atoms over elemental S or from the reaction F$+ D_{2}S \to SD +$DF at a total pressure of 0.5 Torr. The Q(3/2) transition was detected at $1885.610 cm^{-1}$ using lines from the $^{13}C^{16}O$ and $^{13}C^{18}O$ isotopic lasers. A resonance observed with a $^{13}C^{16}O$ laser line at $1861.433 cm^{-1}$ has been identified as one component of the P(5/2) transition. This observation serves to confirm that the carrier is SD but provides no additional information on the excited state energy levels (the ground state rotational constant is already well $known^{1}$). Further transitions re being sought in the hopes of obtaining accurate values for the vibrational band origin and the B rotational constant in the v = 1 state. en_US dc.format.extent 112062 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title LASER MAGNETIC RESONANCE DETECTION OF THE SD RADICAL AT 5.3 $\mu$m en_US dc.type article en_US
