Alkyl peroxy radicals long have been well known to bekey intermediates in atmospheric chemistry as well as in low temperature combustion. For the last several years, our group has generated a data set for these radicals using room temperature cavity ringdown spectroscopy. We have recently extended our investigations of these radicals to obtain a similar data set of spectra under jet cooled conditions using a quasi-Fourier-transform-limited laser source, a supersonic slit jet expansion and a discharge. We have observed isomer and conformer specific spectra of the following species : methyl peroxy, CH$_3$O$_2$, ethyl peroxy, C$_2$H$_5$O$_2$, propyl peroxy, C$_3$H$_7$O$_2$, and phenyl peroxy, C$_6$H$_5$O$_2$ . This presentation will focus on the analysis of these spectra and demonstrate the valuable capabilities of our setup.
