Discharge assisted laser ablation (DALAS) of a vanadium rod in presence of H$_{2}$S gas was used to synthesize the radical in the microwave region. In the millimeter-wave range, the species was produced from the mixture of CS$_{2}$ and VCl$_{4}$ vapor in a DC discharge. The hyperfine structure was resolved and accurate fine and hyperfine parameters were obtained. Insights into the bonding character can be gleamed from the hyperfine constants, and an estimate of the position of two low-lying interacting electronic states can be obtain from the fine structure parameters. Details of these results will be discussed. en_US dc.language.iso en en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title THE MILLIMETER DIRECT ABSORPTION AND FOURIER TRANSFORM MICROWAVE SPECTRUM OF VANADIUM SULFIDE (X$^{4}\Sigma^{-}$) en_US dc.type Article en_US
