Notes

1Spin splitting constant gamma0 = +0.0043.
2Weak predissociation above v=0,N=20 ( missing citation for As18O) Callomon and Morgan, 1965, Meyer, 1965, attributed Callomon and Morgan, 1965 to interaction with the unstable 4Sigma+ state arising from ground state atomic products.
3Estimated from band head separations.
4Deperturbed Goure, Figuet, et al., 1972 constants. Strong perturbations by successive levels in both doublet components of a 2Phi or 2Delta state, and possibly by other states.
5Only v=0 observed.
6From perturbations in C 2Delta5/2 vibrational numbering unknown.
7v=0 and 1, formerly d'Incan and Goure, 1969 attributed to a 4Sigma state, are perturbed by levels of a 2Sigma- state and of H 2Pi 1/2, 3/2 Anderson and Callomon, 1973.
8The spin splitting constant gammav increases from gamma0 = +0.021 to gamma7 = +0.039.
9Lowest observed level, from a perturbation in D(v=0). Vibrational numbering unknown.
10Bands of the 1/2-1/2 transition have not been identified. One level of 2Pi1/2 (vibrational numbering unknown) may be responsible for a perturbation in D 2Sigma- (v=0).
11Effective constants.
12Perturbations in v=1,2 by v=0,l, resp., of D 2Sigma-.
13Spin splitting constant gamma = -0.035.
14v=0,1,2 perturbed by v=9...12 of A' 2Pi 1/2. Additional perturbations by unidentified levels of Sigma and Pi symmetry Callomon and Morgan, 1965, Anderson and Callomon, 1973.
15He= -2.6E-12.
16Ae = -316.08.
17The levels v=9...12 of 2Pi1/2 have been observed in perturbations of A 2Sigma+(v=0,1,2) and were previously Callomon and Morgan, 1965 assigned to a state G 2Pi.
18Lambda-type doubling Deltanufe = -0.002(J+1/2).
19Ae= +1026.94.
20Lambda-type doubling Deltanufe = +0.0179(J+1/2).
21From the predissociation in B 2Sigma+.
