The molecule was generated using a laser ablation/molecular beam source in which a solid calcium rod was ablated and a mixture of argon seeded with a few percent of methanol was used as the carrier gas. The rotational analysis of the band is consistent with a linear Ca-O-C geometry in both electronic states and hence $C_{3x}$ symmetry for the $CaOCH_{3}$ radical. The values of the spin-rotation parameters determined for the excited $\tilde{B}^{1}A_{1}$ state will be discussed. en_US dc.format.extent 85375 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title LASER EXCITATION SPECTROSCOPY OF THE $\tilde{B}^{2}A_{1}-\tilde{X}^{2}A_{1}$ TRANSITION OF $CaOCH_{3}$ en_US dc.type article en_US
