The molecules were produced by laser ablation of a rhodium target rod followed by reaction with 2\% PH$_3$ seeded in He in a pulsed supersonic jet. At least three electronic transitions with extensive upper state vibrational progressions have been observed by laser-induced fluorescence between 420 nm and 510 nm. All the bands are degraded to longer wavelengths and have an R branch which rapidly forms a head and a more open P branch. First lines in the bands were seen allowing line assignments which are consistent with $^1$$\Sigma - ^1$$\Sigma$ transitions. Dispersed fluorescence from the bands give a ground state vibrational interval of approximately 507 cm$^{-1}$ plus also indicate the presence of low-lying electronic states at 2454 cm$^{-1}$ and 4691 cm$^{-1}$. Molecular constants for the excited and ground states will be presented. en_US dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title HIGH RESOLUTION LASER SPECTROSCOPY OF RHODIUM MONOPHOSPHIDE en_US dc.type article en_US
