Notes

1Constants for the F2 component. Large nuclear hyperfine structure in 3Delta1 and 3Delta3, b ~0.196 cm-1 Femenias, Athenour, et al., 1974. A smaller effect was also observed in the excited 3Phi state Femenias, Athenour, et al., 1974.
20-0 sequence only.
3IR spectrum of Nb14N in Ar matrix at 14 K Green, Korfmacher, et al., 1973. Identity with the lower state of the gas phase spectrum not certain.
