A large number of V shaded emission bands in the region 40000 - 55000 cm-1 has tentatively been assigned to five or six systems with upper state vibrational frequencies ranging from ~940 to ~1030 cm-1 and lower state constants similar to those of the ground and first excited states of SeO.

Notes

1Average of F2 and F3; B0(F3) - B0(F2) = +0.0052.
2Rotational perturbations Barrow and Deutsch, 1963.
3Emission bands with v' > 2 have not been observed, probably owing to predissociation. The limit is at ~ 35600 cm-1 above X1(v"=0).
4 Kushawaha and Pathak, 1972 give 17338.5 which does not agree with their v00 value. It is not clear whether X1 or X2 is the lower state of this system.
5 Kushawaha and Pathak, 1972 considered the upper state to the b 1Sigma+, but v00 appears too high for this interpretation.
6Extrapolated from bands having v"=3.
7From P, Q head separations.
