The general aspect of the band is Gaussian. However, deviations from the Gaussian shape strongly suggest that there are a number of sub-bands or branches on either side of the central maximum. As many as 8 of these branches are visible. Theoretical considerations using simple potential functions indicate that the selection rules for a parallel band of a linear molecule in a liquid could be $\Delta{M}= \O$; $AJ=O,\pm 2, \pm 4$,.... and $\Delta{M}=\pm 1$; $AJ=\pm 1$ with perhaps the addition of $\pm 3, \pm 5$,.... An interpretation of the band shape in terms of these selection rules and potential functions allows an estimate of the force tending to hold the molecule in a given direction in the liquid. en_US dc.format.extent 83742 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title THE BAND SHAPE OF $\nu_{3}$ OF LIQUID $CS_{2}$ en_US dc.type article en_US
