• Abstract

Eleven bands of A10 belonging to the system (D2Σ+-X2Σ+) in the ultra-violet region have been analysed for their rotational structure. These are the 0-2, 1-3, 2-4, 0-3, 1-4, 3-0, 4-1, 3-1, 4-0, 5-1 and 6-1 bands lying at 2611.8Å, 2620.7Å, 2629.4Å, 2677.4Å, 2685.7Å, 2347.7Å, 2358.3Å, 2402.2Å, 2305.8Å, 2316.7Å and 2277.3Å respectively. The spin-splitting for the D2Σ+ state has been determined from the doubling of the rotational lines observed for the bands 0-2, 1-3, 2-4 and 1-4. The rotational and vibrational constants (in cm−1) evaluated for the D2Σ+ state are:$$\begin{gathered} T_a = 40267 \cdot 6 \hfill \\ G(V) = 817 \cdot 47 (v + 1/2) - 4 \cdot 795 (v + 1/2)^2 - 0 \cdot 1107 (v + 1/2)^3 \hfill \\ B_v = 0 \cdot 56522 - 0 \cdot 0046 (v + 1/2) - 0 \cdot 00005 (v + 1/2)^2 \hfill \\ \gamma = 0 \cdot 004 \pm 0 \cdot 002 \hfill \\ \sigma = - 0 \cdot 4 \pm 0 \cdot 1 \times 10^{ - 6} \hfill \\ \end{gathered}$$
