### Notes

1 | All lines diffuse; predissociation. |

2 | All observed vibrational levels of B ^{2} show perturbations by
A ^{2} levels with v l.
The rotational constants in Stenvinkel, 1936 are satisfactorily reproduced by B_{v} = 3.304 -
0.033(v+1/2) + 0.00060(v+1/2)^{2} - 0.00024_{5}(v+1/2)^{3} except for v=1, 2, and 3 all
of which are close to the intersection of the two potential curves. |

3 | A_{0} = +342.66 Veseth, 1971, A_{1} = +342.06 Veseth, 1971 [as recalculated in Veseth, 1971 from the data of Stenvinkel, 1936]. |

4 | Rotational constants for v=0 and 1 as recalculated in Veseth, 1971 from the data of Stenvinkel, 1936.
-type doubling _{fe}(^{2}_{1/2}, v=0) ~ 0.26_{9}(J+1/2) - ...,
and in ^{2}_{3/2} [see Fujioka and Tanaka, 1937 and Stenvinkel, 1936]. |

5 | D_{1} = 4.46E-4; H_{0} = +1.3_{4}E-8, H_{1} = +0.9E-8. |

6 | J'=1/2 (average of F_{1} and {F_{2}}) relative to N"=0.
A different definition was used in Stenvinkel, 1936. |

7 | _{e}z_{e} = -0.4339. Very rapid convergence.
The constants (from Stenvinkel, 1936) lead to a discrepancy of nearly 6 cm^{-1} for
the highest observed level, v=5. |

8 | Spin doubling, v_{12}(v=0) = +0.254(N+1/2) - ... [ Stenvinkel, 1936, see also Veseth, 1970],
decreasing rapidly with increasing v. |

9 | _{v}= -0.03765(v+1/2)^{2} + 0.00897(v+1/2)^{3} - 0.001479(v+1/2)^{4}. |

10 | D_{1}(E-4 cm^{-1})= 5.00,
D_{2}(E-4 cm^{-1})= 5.49,
D_{3}(E-4 cm^{-1})= 6.58,
D_{4}(E-4 cm^{-1})= 8.40,
D_{5}(E-4 cm^{-1})= 10.5.
Also higher order terms, see Stenvinkel, 1936. |

11 | ESR sp. 13 |

12 | Short extrapolation for the ground state. |

13 | In Ar matrix at 4 K Knight and Weltner, 1971. |

14 | From the value for ZnH. |

15 | A_{0} = +342.82 Veseth, 1971, as recalculated in Veseth, 1971 from the data of Fujioka and Tanaka, 1937. |

16 | Rotational constants recalculated in Veseth, 1971 from data in Fujioka and Tanaka, 1937.
-type doubling _{fe}(^{2}_{1/2}) ~ +0.170~(J+1/2) - ,.., see Fujioka and Tanaka, 1937. |

17 | H_{0} = +1._{6}E-8. |

18 | Spin doubling _{12} = +0.131(N+1/2), see Fujioka and Tanaka, 1937. |
