This work is the first spectroscopic study of ZnS in the gas phase. This molecule was produced by the reaction of zinc vapor and H$_2$S under DC discharge conditions. Eight rotational transitions were recorded for four stable zinc isotopologues of ZnS in the v = 0 state, and data were also obtained for ^{64}$ZnS and ^{66}$ZnS in the v = 1 state. The data have been analyzed and spectroscopic constants and equilibrium parameters have been determined. The equilibrium bond length of ZnS was established to be 2.0464 \AA, as compared to 1.7047 {\AA} for ZnO. en_US dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title THE PURE ROTATIONAL SPECTRUM OF ZnS (X$^{1}\Sigma^{+})$ en_US dc.type Article en_US
