Unanswered questions propelled further REMPI studies of the $low-n^{\ast}$ region $(n^{\ast}=3-5)$, which is expected to be extensively predissociated by $^{2}\Sigma^{+}$ and possibly $^{2}\Pi$ repulsive states. Preliminary results indicate the presence of three unobserved members of two known core-penetrating $^{2}\Sigma^{+}$ Rydberg series $(n^{\ast} = 3.50, 3.77, 4.50)$ as well as the resonant detection of predissociation by TOF measurements measuring the atomic Ca photofragment channel. Further experiments in this $n^{\ast}$ region should determine the potential energy curve of the $^{2}\Pi$ repulsive state as well as several new members of the two known $^{2}\Pi$ Rydberg series. en_US dc.format.extent 132084 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title PREDISSOCIATION STUDIES IN RYDBERG STATES OF CALCIUM MONOCHLORIDE en_US dc.type article en_US
