dc.description.abstractRecent experimental results from our continuing study of the Rydberg states of Calcium Monochloride will be $summarized.^{a,b}$ At last year's Symposium, results were presented with regard to the predissociation of $^{2}\Sigma^{+}$ states in the $n^{\ast} = 3-7 region.^{c}$ The potential energy curve of the $^{2}\Sigma^{+}$ repulsive state responsible for these predissociations was quantitatively determined by direct observations of line broadening in the $n^{\ast}=6-7$ region via REMPI and ion-dip techniques and qualitatively determined in the $n^{\ast}=3-5$ region by OODR fluorescence detection. 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
