Abstract

Rotationally-resolved transitions from both the linear and T-shaped He-ICl(X) ground-state complexes have been recorded in the ICl B $^{3}\Pi_{0+}-X{^{1}}\Sigma^{+} 2-0$ and 3-0 spectral regions using laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy. Experiments performed with varying expansion conditions indicate that the lowest level within the ground state potential is localized in the linear He-ICl(X) orientation. Based on comparison with the theoretical predictions of $Waterland et al.,^{a}$ estimates of 21 and $17 cm^{-1}$ for the binding energies of the ground state, linear and T-shaped He-ICl(X) complexes, respectively, are established.
