The spectra, recorded in the second order of a half-meter spectrometer (1180 grooves/nm grating), show about 200 fluorescence lines. There are four R-P series and five Q series which we assign to the C-X system of $Na_{2}$. One of these originates at a very high $v’‘$ ground level $(v’‘ = 17)$ and shows emission almost exclusively on the blue side of the laser line. While the X state $constants^{1}$ reproduced energy levels very precisely, the C state $constants^{2}$ do not seem to do so, except for very low v^{\prime} and J^{\prime} levels. We will briefly discuss the spectra, the $C^{1}\Pi_{u}$ constants, the fluorescence intensities, and the behavior of the transition moment for the C-X system of $Na_{2}$. en_US dc.format.extent 92573 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title ULTRAVIOLET ARGON ION LASER INDUCED FLUORESCENCE OF $Na_{2}^{*}$. en_US dc.type article en_US
