The $C^{2}\Pi$ state exhibits a large $n$-doubling and the ${X}^{2}\Sigma^{+}$ state has a hyperfine spliting due to the inteaction of the La nuclear spin with the unpaired electron. A total of seven elcetronic states of LaO have now been characterized. A model of the electronic structure is applied to calculate the approximate energies of the unobserved $^\Delta$ states of ScO and YO. Good agreement is obtained between the model calculations and the experimental results for the LaO $A^{\prime}{^{2}\Delta}$ electronic state. en_US dc.format.extent 69127 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title ELECTRONIC STATES OF ScO, YO AND LaO en_US dc.type article en_US
