Abstract

A number of previously unreported rotational transitions in the ground and first excited vibrational state of $H_{2}O$, HDO, and $D_{2}O$ between 500 GHz and 1000 GHz have been observed. The fundamental source of radiation was a reflex klystron operating at about 50 GHz, which was, used to drive a crossed-waveguide harmonic generator. The new transitions were combined with previously reported results, and fitted to a centrifugal distortion Hamiltonian in order to obtain spectral parameters. $^{*}$ Work supported by ARO Grant DAAC-29-8O-C-0026 and NASA Grant NSG-7574
