Publisher:Ohio State University
A significant source of chlorine in the atmosphere is found in the form of the halogenated species methyl chloride. Atmospheric as well as chemical sensing research of this molecule requires a detailed knowledge of its line position frequencies. The ground vibrational state, as well as the $\nu_6$=1 vibrational state have been well studied using both microwave and infrared spectroscopy. The effort described here is the examination of less completely analyzed $\nu_3$=1vibrational state by means of a frequency tunable microwave source with Schottky diode multipliers and heterodyne detection in the submillimeter region. Doppler limited spectra was obtained for $J\leq 25$, $K\leq 9$ for the $\nu_3$=1 rotational states for both Cl isotopomers. The center frequencies of the hyperfine-split lines where obtained through a non-linear least squares fitting of the measured frequency modulated spectra with the derived lineshapes. These centers were combined with previously measured line frequencies to calculate new hyperfine and sextic rotational constants for the $\nu_3$=1 state.
