A liquid nitrogen-cooled carbon monoxide (CO) laser was used as a source of strong coherent radiation in the 1442 to 1469 cm$^{-1}$ region of the infrared. The molecular transitions were brought into resonance with the laser frequency using magnetic fields up to 1.4 T. Using eleven CO laser emissions, spectra were recorded in both parallel ($\Delta M_{J}$ = 0) and perpendicular ($\Delta M_{J}$ = $\pm$1) polarizations with over one hundred new absorption lines observed. Additionally, detuning experiments were performed on over forty new and previously observed absorption lines. Analysis of the 3$^{1}_{0}$ fundamental (near 1466.5 cm$^{-1}$) and 2$^{1}_{1}$3$^{1}_{0}$ hot band (near 1455.6 cm$^{-1}$) in the $^{3}\Sigma^{-}_{g}$ ground electronic state has led to the new assignment of LMR absorption lines as well as the reassignment of several LMR and Fourier transform lines belonging to NCN. The molecular parameters for NCN have been determined from a least squares fit of the Fourier transform and LMR spectra with a Hund's case (b) basis set truncated at $\Delta N$ = $\pm$3. en_US dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title REINVESTIGATION OF THE NCN RADICAL USING INFRARED LASER MAGNETIC RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY en_US dc.type article en_US
