Notes

1Predissociated near J = 30.
2Lambda-type doubling, Deltanuef ~ +0.00005J(J+1).
3Predissociation in v=1 at J ~60; v=2 observed in absorption only.
4Very weak band.
5The vibrational analysis of Liu and Jones, 1972 assigns v=0 to the lowest level observed in emission. However, the 1-0 and 0-0 bands may have been observed in absorption Chatalic, Danon, et al., 1971 at 49001 and 48192 cm-1 [47192 in Chatalic, Danon, et al., 1971 seems to be a misprint] as members of a strong upper state progression which begins at 47381 cm-1 and may even include a diffuse band at 46570 cm-1. No details.
6Very complicated rotational structure.
7Lambda-type doubling, Deltanuef ~ +0.000015J(J+1).
8Fragments of a system
9Small Lambda-type doubling.
10Be and re from the f component;Deltanuef = + 0.0035J(J+1).
11For a more detailed discussion of the X 3Sigma- (0+,1) fine structure see Veseth, 1973.
12Effective value.
13Theoretical calculations, for D00 supported by limited experimental data; see O'Hare, Batana, et al., 1973. The same paper gives theoretical values for the electron affinity (1.1 eV) and dipole moment (1.75 D) of AsF.
14Long 0-0 sequence of V shaded Q heads; R, P branches undegraded.
