Paper Abstract

Using carbon dioxide lasers it is possible routinely to obtain saturation spectra in the 10 micrometers region at linewidths below 20 kHz. A complementary double resonance technique uses a carbon dioxide laser to saturate a vibration-rotation transition while probing the molecule with a radio frequency. These two techniques are combined to obtain data on nuclear hyperfine structures in molecular spectra, which in turn are used to test and extend current theoretical models.
