Abstract

A frequency calibration in the tuning range of the ArF excimer laser near 193 nm was performed. Different electronic spectra of NO were measured by laser-induced fluorescence in a cell and in an oxyacetylene flame. Spectra were measured with a frequency-doubled and Raman-shifted dye laser system and with a tunable ArF excimer laser with a modified configuration. A list of absolute frequencies of the B2 Π(ν' = 7) ⟵Χ2Π(ν"=0) and D2Σ+(ν'=0)←Χ2Π(ν"=1) transitions in this spectral region is given, including a more comprehensive assignment of the latter excitation spectrum.
