Paper Abstract

The vibration-rotation spectra of CuH and Nee were detected by infrared emission from a copper hollow cathode lamp with the Kitt Peak Fourier transform spectrometer. The (1,0), (2,1) and (2,0) bands of °3CuH and 65CuH were found as well as the (1,0), 2,1) and (3,2) bands of NeH+. The Ne and H2 pressures in the lamp were 2 torr and 30 mtorr, respectively. By replacing the H2 with D2 the (1,0) and (2,1) bands of NeD+ were observed. CuH is the first metal hydride for which a vibration-rotation emission spectrum has been detected. Dunham coefficients, including the effects of Born-Oppenheimer breakdown, were extracted from the data.
