In a non-rotating molecule, the angular momentum operators J , S and L have the following diagonal matrix elements: 1 <JQ| J |JQ> =tiQ (1.1) z <SI| S |SI> - til z (1.2) <LA| L |LA> =tiA (1.3) z <JQ| J2|JQ> =fi J(J + 1) (1.4) 2 <SI|S2|SX>=fi S(S + 1) (1.5) 2 <LA| L2||_A> = t i L ( L + 1 ) (1.6) 2 J, S and L are the total, spin and orbital angular momenta, respectively; J , S and L are their respective quantum numbers, and Q, L and A are the projection quantum numbers in diatomic molecules (i.e., along the molecular z axis). The ladder operator L+ of a general angular momentum L has the Cartesian form 2 L± = L ± i L y (1.8) x It has the property of transforming state |L,m> into state | L , m ± 1 > , where m is the quantum number of L. operations are written: <J,Q±1| J For J and S the laddering 1 |Jn> =ti[J(J+1) - Q(Q±1)] /2 1 T <S,I±1| S±|SI>=ti[S(S+1)-I(I±1)] /2 1 (1.9) (1.10) 2 J? in equation (1.9) is not expressed as J± because the commutation relations are different in the space-fixed and molecule-fixed axis systems: 3 J X J Y - J Y J X = Uz J J x y - JyJx = -Uz SPACE (1.11) MOLECULE (1.12) This leads to a sign reversal upon transformation from the spacefixed to molecule-fixed systems (the anomalous sign of i): J±|JM> = fi[J(J+1) - M(M+1)] ' |J,M±1> 1 SPACE (1.13) MOLECULE (1.14) 2 J |JK> =fi[J(J+1) - K(K+1)] /2 |J,K±1> 1 T Although the motion of the electrons about the axis defines a good quantum number A , L itself is not a good quantum number because a diatomic molecule is not a spherical system. Thus L and L do not x y obey the usual operator equations, and L± is left in the form <L+L. + L.L >/2, or <L_L>, with the quantity B<Lj_> appearing on the diagonal + of the rotational Hamiltonian matrix as a minor, constant electronic isotope shift incorporated into the effective vibrational energy. 1 The dot product of two general angular momentum operators A and B is: AB = A B 2 Z + (A+B. + A.B+)/2 (1.15) The addition of angular momenta j i and J2 to form j results in the coupled eigenfunction |jm>: |jm> = I (-i)ji-j2+m V I J T T / ji mirr)2 \mi j 2 j\|jimi> |j m > 2 2 (1.16) m2 -m/ where |ji m 1 > and |J2m > are the uncoupled eigenfunctions, the first 2 term is a phase factor, and V2j+1 is a normalization factor.

The specific selection rules vary depending on the manner in which the spin, orbital and rotational angular momenta are coupled to one another and to the internuclear axis. The angular momentum coupling schemes in diatomic molecules are distinguished by sets of molecule-fixed basis functions called the Hund's coupling cases. main property differentiating the four coupling cases The described below is the number of angular momenta which have well-defined components (quantum numbers) along the internuclear axis. The 12 appropriate coupling case is the one which produces the smallest off-diagonal diagonal matrix elements spectral pattern. elements which for most the rotational closely Hamiltonian, reproduce the or observed The most common cases by far in molecules with no very heavy atoms are cases (a) and (b).

Case (a) occurs where there is a non-zero orbital angular momentum and fairly small spin-orbit coupling, where the coupling of L and S to each other is less important than the coupling of L to the a x i s . 24 The vector diagram for case (a) coupling is given in Fig. 1.2. In case (b) coupling, S is coupled only weakly to the axis, but L remains strongly coupled.

The effects of rotation become important when BJ becomes large compared to the separations between the spin-orbit components. 1 The transformation of a case (a) situation to case (b) occurs by way of the spin-uncoupling operator, -B(J+S. + J-S+). With its selection rules A S and A A = 0, and AO. = A X = ± 1 , this operator most commonly mixes spin-orbit components of a given 2 S + 1 A state, which is consistent with the physical case (b) phenomenon of uncoupling L from S. 23 The case (b) representation also arises for X states in which there is no orbital angular momentum to couple the spin to the axis. The total angular momentum J in case (b) is thus obtained as: * 2 (1.52) R + L = N; N + S = J instead of the case (a) situation (1.53) R + L +S = J The case (b) basis function, | r i ; N A S J > , is the more physically realistic representation in those cases where the rotational angular momentum N is quantized about the axis, with electron providing only minor corrections to the total energy. spin Its vector diagram appears in Fig. 1.3. When nuclear spin is included in the basis set describing angular momentum coupling in diatomic molecules, the Hund's coupling cases (a) and (b) must be further subdivided. molecules, including those In the majority of diatomic considered in the current work, I is coupled so loosely to the internuclear axis or to S that the dominant coupling is to the rotational angular momentum J , or 15 16 (1.54) J +I =F By analogy with Hund's case (b), those coupling schemes following equation (1.54) are denoted by p* subscripts. coupling cases are called The extended Hund's ap and b p j , corresponding functions |ASXJQIF> and |NASJIF>, to basis respectively.25,26 Coupling schemes in which I is not coupled to J are a , bpN and a bps. with In the a the case ( a ) a a case, nuclear spin is coupled to the molecular axis projection quantum number l , though molecules exhibiting z coupling have never been o b s e r v e d . since nuclear magnetic 27 This is expected moments are on the order of a thousand times smaller than that of the electron, making it unlikely that the dominant nuclear spin coupling will be to the internuclear axis by a magnetic interaction with the electronic momenta. In the bpN and b p s cases I is coupled to N respectively, rather than to J as in case (bpj). and orbital angular and S, Case (bpN) coupling is not expected to be observed, as the magnetic moment of N (composed of R + L) is normally considerably less than that of either J or S, as S has a large magnetic moment and J is the sum of S and L. 27 In Hund's case (bps), I couples to S to form a vector G, which couples to N to form the total angular momentum F: I+S =G G +N = F In a nonrotating momenta are absent, coupling scheme. coupling molecule, where any rotationally case induced angular (bps) will be the dominant case (b) In a rotating case (b) molecule, however, the case that occurs depends on the relative sizes of the coupling of S to I and N: if the I S coupling dominates, the (bps) 17 case occurs. The best condition for a case (bps) molecule is a X state which originates nearly completely from an atomic s orbital.

The diagonal and off-diagonal rotational matrix elements are calculated by applying equations (1.1) through (1.10) and equation (1.15) to equation (1.61): < J Q L A S I | H | J n L A S X > = B[J(J + 1) - Q2 S(S +1) - X ( Z + 1)] '2 1 + (1.63) and <JS, Q±1 ,X±1 |H|JSQX> = -B{[(J(J + 1) - Q(Q ± 1)] x[S(S + 1 ) - X ( X ± 1)]} /2 1 (1.64) The D terms are obtained by squaring the matrix of the coefficients of the B terms. 22 I.D.2. Spin Hamiltonian. Spin-orbit coupling can be expressed as the scalar product of the many-electron operators, electronic S and L, spin which and orbital (using angular equations 1.8 momentum and 1.15) is represented in Cartesian form as: H -S = A[(L + i L ) ( S L X = AL S Z y Z - iS )/2 + L S x y Z + (L - i L ) ( S Z x y + iS )/2] x y + A ( L S . + LS+)/2 (1.65) + where A is the spin-orbit coupling constant. Neglecting the terms off-diagonal in L, equation (1.65) can be shortened t o : H .s = A L S L z 31 (1.66) z which has the selection rule A S = 0, and produces diagonal matrix elements of A A S . The dipolar spin-spin interaction can be represented by the classical Hamiltonian for two bar magnets, or dipoles, n : H= aiiu )/(r 2 1 2 ) 3 - 3(m-r )(H2-ri2)/(ri2) 12 in which ri2 is the vector between dipoles u i and u 2 5 3 7 ( - ) 1 67 , or ri - T2- The magnetic dipole of spin S is u = -gu S (1.68) B where g is the dimensionless electronic g factor and LIB is the Bohr magneton (the unit on an electronic magnetic moment, equal to efV2m where e and m are the charge and mass of the electron, respectively). The dipolar interaction 38 in terms of two electron spin vectors separated by vector r is therefore: H -s = (g P /r ){Si-S 2 2 3 s 2 - 3(si-r)(s r)/r2} 2 (1.69) Considering only the q = 0 terms (i.e., neglecting the components q = ±1 and ± 2 ) , the interaction reduces t o : 37 H - s = (g P /r ){S (i)S (2)(3cos20 2 s 2 3 z z 12 - 1) 23 - (S.(DS + (2) + S (1)S.(2))(3 2ei2 + COS - 1)/4} (1.70) Averaging over all orientations of ri and xi and expressed in terms of a total spin S , equation (1.70) becomes: H s - s = ( g W / r ) [ 3 S 2 - S 2 - (S.S+ + S+S.)/2] 3 z z = (9 |iB /r )[2S - (S + iS )(S 2 2 z = (gW/r )(3S x 3 or in terms z x - S2) (1.71) zero-field 2A ), 3 8 H -s = 2 X ( 3 S s primary y of the spin-spin coupling constant X (or splitting parameter The - iSy)] 3 Z - §2)/3 (1.72) spin-spin interaction originates from two mechanisms: contribution to X is from the dipolar interaction the of two unpaired spins, but there is also an effect due to second order spinorbit coupling, which may in fact be considerably larger: x = ass aso Ci .73) + Second order perturbation theory applied to the interaction produces a spin-spin interaction as follows. order contribution of the spin-orbit 39 interaction spin-orbit The second in single particle terms is: E ( ) = I [E 2 so TI'A'S' - E - ' s r X ^ A l a i l i l n ' A ^ X<T A |ajf |TiA> , l l A S T l , 1 A 1 i , j j x X<SX|Si|ST><ST|Si|SX> The (1.74) term summing over X ' produces the dipolar spin-spin term < S X | s S j | S X > , as well as other matrix elements not of interest here r because they are off-diagonal in A . The dipolar spin-spin interaction matrix elements are obtained by applying equations (1.2) through (1.5) to equation (1.72): 24 <jni_ASI| H -s |Jfll_ASI> = 2X[X - S(S + 1 )/3] (1.75) 2 s The states they mix have A X (=AA) and A S = 0, ± 1 , ± 2 4 0 Centrifugal distortion corrections to the spin-orbit and spin-spin interactions—Ao and XQ, respectively-must also be considered. Terms containing the parameters AQ and XD are therefore added to the rotational Hamiltonian (equation 1.60) as follows: 41 Hrot = BR2 - D R + A R 2 L S + 2X R2(3S - S ) / 3 (1.76) 2 4 D Z Z D Z Since the products of the operators in the AQ and XJJ terms are not Hermitian, a Hermitian average must be taken by symmetrizing the products with the anticommutator. for the AD and Xo The diagonal matrix parameters therefore follow the elements rotational constant B, but are multiplied by the elements for the spin-orbit and spin-spin interactions, respectively. The off-diagonal elements do likewise, except that since there are no off-diagonal terms in A or X, the factor for these interactions becomes the average of the two A diagonal elements. As before, the operator R 2 is simplified by omission of the x and y components of -2J-L + 2L-S + L . 2 The spin-rotation operator, the dot product of the spin and rotational angular momenta, is written in Cartesian form a s : A- A- A. A- H -R = y(J " L - S ) S (1.77) S Neglecting L+terms, equation 3 1 (1.77) produces the expanded Hamiltonian: H -R = Y[J S - L S S + ( J S . + J-S )/2] (1.78) <jni_ASX| H -s |Jnl_ASX> = y[X - S(S + 1)] (1.79) 2 Z Z Z - S 2 z + + with diagonal elements: 2 s and off-diagonal elements equal to those given in equation (1.64), but replacing B with -y/2. 25 I.D.3.

(1.98) The sign of nuclear hyperfine coupling constants in transition metal complexes. I.D.3.a.i. The sign of the Fermi contact interaction. For an isotropic (Fermi contact) interaction involving only pure s electrons, the isotropic hyperfine constant aF is positive because the magnetic field generated at the nucleus by the interaction is in the same direction contributions to the as the electronic isotropic spin. hyperfine However, interaction negative occur when there are open shell d or p electrons which polarize s electrons in inner (filled) orbitals via an exchange interaction which promotes an 28 electron from an inner s orbital to an outer empty one. For 4 3 example, a ground electronic configuration with a single unpaired 3d electron, ¥ can mix with excited 0 = states (3s+)(3s-)(3d+) resulting from the promotion of an electron from a 3s to 4s orbital to produce the three functions: 43 ¥ 1 = (4s+)(3s-)(3d+) ¥2 = (3s+)(4s-)(3d+) ¥3 = (3s+)(4s+)(3d+) This is known as a configuration interaction, in which the ground and excited states possess different spin distributions yet form the basis for the same irreducible representation, in keeping with the requirement remains First order yielding an that the energy perturbation of the system theory expression for constant. 44 is applied to describe the mixing, the hyperfine contribution due to configuration interaction that is a function of the product of the ns and ms orbitals evaluated at the nucleus [ns(0)ms(0)], times an exchange integral J(ms,3d,3d,ns), divided by the energy separation between the ms and ns orbitals: 3 X=8TCS °° X [ns(0)ms(0) x J(ms,3d,3d,ns)]/(E -E ) m n (1-99) n-1 m=4 The quantity x ' s independent of c h a r g e 4 3 and is related to the isotropic Fermi contact coupling constant, aF, b y : a where g e and g n F = (2/3)geLi gnHnX B 4 4 (1.100) are the electronic and nuclear g factors and LIB and L i are the Bohr and nuclear magnetons. n The quantity [ns(0)4s(0)]/(E4- 29 E ) for the n • 1, 2, 3 s orbitals of the neutral atoms of the first row n transition metals from V to Cu was found to increase by about 20% across the series.

I.D.4. The The nuclear electric quadrupole interaction. nuclear electric quadrupole interaction involves two second rank tensors, representing the electric field gradient and the nuclear quadrupole moment. A simple quadrupolar Hamiltonian is method by which to derive the with the use of spherical harmonics and Legendre polynomials. To obtain the Hamiltonian for the electrostatic interaction of the nuclear quadrupole moment with the electric field gradient at the nucleus, a multipole expansion is made for the scalar coupling of the charges of the nucleons with those of the electrons. A multipole 32 expansion is a spherical harmonic expansion (or Legendre polynomial expansion) where the values of I in the spherical harmonic Y | m are referred to as monopole, dipole, quadrupole and octopole for I = 0, 1, 2 and 3 . By Coulomb's l a w , the electrostatic Hamiltonian is 4 8 49 H = Ieq /R n n which describes the interaction (1-112) n between n nucleons with charge q and an electron with charge e, with an electron-nucleon of R . n separation The electrostatic potential at the electron is n V =Iq /R n The distance R n (1.113) n is the resultant of the two vectors originating from the nuclear center to the nth nucleon (r ) and to the electron n with the angle between vectors r cosines and R denoted by 9 . n (R), The law of n gives the relation between R , r , R and 0 : 5 0 n Rn = (R 2 + r n n - 2Rr cose ) 2 n n = R[1 + ( r / R ) n 2 1 / 2 n - 2(r /R)cose ] n (1.114) 1/2 n By the generating function for Legendre polynomials , 51 [1 - 2 ( r / R ) c o s 9 n equation as: + (r /R) ] 2 n 1 / 2 n = I P|(cos0 )(r /R) n (1.115) 1 n (1.113) can be written in terms of a Legendre polynomial 5 2 V = X I P|COS(0n)q rn /R'+ l=0 n l (1.116) 1 n Each Legendre electronic and harmonic addition polynomial nuclear tensor theorem), (1.116) the multipole represents the operators scalar (from the producing from equations expansion: 48 52 product of spherical (1.112) and 33 A Hmultipole = e v * = H ( - 1 ) [ I (e/R' ) 1=0 m e +1 m C| (e (pe) x I qni-n' C|,. (0 (pn)] m ei M ni (1-117) n where the summations over e electrons and n nucleons represent terms in electronic (8 ,(pe) and nuclear (0 ,<pn) angular coordinates, e n respectively. The first term in this expansion which is non-vanishing describes the quadrupolar interaction. The I = 0 term can be represented by Z e V , or the Coulombic interaction between the nuclear charge and 0 the electrons, and is included in the electronic Hamiltonian. 53 The dipole term, I = 1 , is the product of the electric dipole moment of the nucleus, which is zero, and the electrostatic field of the electrons, which is invariant over the nuclear volume and therefore produces the no interaction. interaction 53 The I = 2 quadrupole term, however, is of the nuclear electric quadrupole moment, Q , with the electric field gradient ( V E ) experienced by the nucleus due to the charge distribution of the electrons. For those nuclei possessing a quadrupole moment, then, the quadrupolar Hamiltonian is the scalar product of these two tensor quantities: H Q = 54 -T2(VE)T2(Q) (1.118) where the minus sign is present due to the negative charge of the electron. The quadrupole moment is a measure of how spherical the nucleus is, as indicated by the value of the nuclear spin, I. nuclear charge 3z 2 distribution - (x2 + y2 + z ) angular coordinate). 55 spherical symmetry or 3cos e n 2 2 a v e from a v e The deviation of 1 (where 8 N is given by: is the nuclear This value is non-zero if I is greater than 34 1/2, which odd nucleons (i.e, differences in the number of neutrons with respect to protons). The mechanism is dictated giving by the rise to number specific of values of I is imperfectly understood, though it seems to approximate the same shell model that applies to electrons. Thus, zero spin results from spin-pairing if the number of protons (Z) equals the number of neutrons (N), and predictions for I can usually be made for nuclei possessing odd N or Z based on the number of particles occupying open s h e l l s . 55 By convention, the nuclear electric quadrupole moment is defined classically a s 1 1 Q = ej(3z2 - r2)p(r)dx (1.119) where p(r) is the nuclear charge density, and dx denotes over the nuclear becomes: volume. Quantum mechanically the definition 52 Q = e-lXq r 2(3cos20 n n The integration quantum mechanical n observable n - 1) (1.120) corresponding to equation (1.120) is the nuclear quadrupole moment, Q, defined by convention as 5 4 Q - <l,mi=l| Q |l,mi=l> (1-121) A. The definition of Q was made prior to the invention of spherical tensors and therefore expressions lacks the factor of 1/2 needed for the P2(cos9) - T ( X ) = (3cos e - 1)/2; Q was also defined 2 2 0 without the electron charge e. The spherical tensor definition is therefore T2 (Q) = eQ/2 0 with the corresponding scalar quantity (1.122) 35 eQ/2 = <l,mi=l|T2 (Q)||,mi=l> (1.123) 0 The quadrupole tensor, from equation (1.117), is of the form T2(Q) = Iq r2 C2(e ,(pn) n n The (3 V/3z2) (1-124) n n electric field gradient (EFG) evaluated at the nucleus, has the spherical tensor form (from equation 1.117) of: 2 0 l -T2(VE) = ZeR-3C2(e ,cpe) (1 -125) e e with the corresponding field gradient coupling constant defined as q = <j,mj=J|(a2V/az2) |J,mj=J> (1.126) 0 where (d \lldz ) 2 required 2 0 = eR-3(3cos6 - 1). e Thus, with the factor of 1/2 by the spherical harmonic definition of the quadrupole moment, the E F G tensor can be expressed as: -T2 (VE) = q/2 (1-127) 0 To derive the matrix elements for the quadrupolar interaction (equation 1.116), equation (1.48) is applied to evaluate the scalar coupling of two commuting tensor operators in a coupled basis (I must be unravelled from J ) : ^ ' A ' l S T i J ' n ' I F I H Q |nA;SX;JQIF> = (-1)J+I+F5 F/F I F 12 Then project J'^Tl'A'jJ'Q'H -T2(VE) ||riA;JO><l|| T2(Q) |||> (1.128) J 1/ T (VE) 2 from space- to molecule-fixed axes with equation (1.29): ^ • A ' j J ' Q ' H ^ V E J I h A i J ^ = X<J'n'|| D2. *( pY) ||J«><Ti'A ||-T2 (VE)||TiA> , q a q q = X(-1) '- '[(2J+1)(2J'+1)]1/2/j' J Q q The last term of equation 2 \a' q J W A ' H -T2 (VE) | h A > a) q (1.129) (1.128) is evaluated with the Wigner- Eckart theorem, in conjunction with equation (1.123): 36 <l,mi=l| T 2 ( Q ) ||l,mi=l> = eQ/2 « (-1)'-'/ I 2 l\<l|| T2(Q) ||l> 0 V-l Substituting for the 3-j s y m b o l 57 (1.130) 0 \) and solving for the reduced matrix element gives <l|| T2(Q) ||l> = eQ!2( I 2 V-IO I/ = eQ/2 [(2l+1)(2l+2)(2l+3)/2l(2l-1)]l/2 In terms of the molecule-fixed T ( V E ) 2 (1.131) tensor in equation (1.129), the coupling constant q is defined by the diagonal reduced element of T2(VE): <A||-T2 (VE) ||A> = q/2 (1.132) 0 A first order approximation was made in the current study to neglect the ± 1 and ± 2 components of T ( V E ) , that is, to exclude 2 quadrupole matrix elements combination of equations off-diagonal (1.128), (1.129), in Q.

The beam containing the majority of the output power was passed down the axis of the stream fluorescence (LIF) photomultiplier tube of sample detected at molecules, with the right angles to the longitudinal laser-induced beam equipped with a high transmittance with low a pass optical filter to reduce scattered light, and powered by 300 to 500 V from a high voltage power supply. Phase-sensitive detection was acheived with a Princeton Applied Research (PAR) model 128A lockin amplifier receiving chopped sample and reference signals, with the reference beam supplied by a Spectra-Physics model 132 Lablite HeNe gas laser. The resolved fluorescence experiments were performed with a 0.7 m Spex Industries model 1702 spectrometer which dispersed the spectrum onto the detector elements of a microchannel-plate intensified array detector (PAR model 1461), mounted at the output end of the spectrometer. The spectral window of the array detector was calibrated with a Burleigh model WA-20VIS wavemeter. 43 II.B. Intermodulated Fluorescence. A laser-induced fluorescence transition has a Gaussian velocity population profile forming an because of the Doppler effect, inhomogeneously broadened line, the freqeuncy absorbed by molecules moving away from the light source appears to be lower than that absorbed profile by molecules moving toward (zero velocity) shifted; that is, the the transition it. At the frequency Q center molecules have zero velocity with respect to 65 (or the is not Doppler- the light wave with which the molecules i n t e r a c t . ' free of "sub-Doppler") spectroscopy, two beams) with frequency w propagate the sample gas molecules. travelling 66 In Dopplerwaves in opposite directions (laser through Molecules moving with velocity v along the axis of the laser beams absorbs radiation from one beam at a frequency ft = co(1 + v/c), and from the other beam at ft = co(1 - v/c). These opposite Doppler shifts cause each beam to depopulate portion of the lower state velocity profile symmetrically about profile center at v = c(ft ± co)/ft (see Fig. 2.1). a the This depletion is termed "burning a Bennet hole", creating a homogeneous profile in the lower s t a t e . approaches the As the laser is scanned, and the laser frequency 66 non-Doppler-shifted resonance frequency, the two Bennet holes converge until they meet at the center, or zero velocity (see Fig. 2.1). a The resulting lower state population depletion causes corresponding depletion in the intensity profile of the fluorescence, called a "Lamb dip". Intermodulated fluorescence (IMF) is a technique which enables relatively small Lamb dips to be detected against the large Dopplerbroadened profile so that they are directly measured as spectral 44 F i g . 2.1.

A LIF signal normally arises from Bennet holes caused by allowed A F = A J transitions meeting at the velocity profile center. However, Lamb dips also originate from holes burned by "forbidden" A F # A J transitions meeting at the center. Since the selection r u l e s 24 on F and J are A F = 0, ± 1 and AJ = 0, ± 1 , transitions with A F = A J ± 1 and ± 2 are also possible. For a Q transition, with A J = 0, the F selection rule requiring that A F = 0, +1 allows the transitions rQ (AF = AJ + 1), qQ (AF = AJ) and pQ (AF = A J - 1). If A J = +1, A F = +1, 0 and -1 corresponds to the transitions rR, qR and pR (or A F = A J , AJ - 1 and AJ - 2). The same occurs for P branches where A F = A J , AJ + 1 and A J + 2 lines (pP, qP and rP) occur. observed only at low These satellite branches are values of J because the transitions is proportional to the angle between F. 6 7 intensity of the the vectors J and When J and F are large with respect to I this angle approaches zero, and only A F = AJ transitions are observed. 9/2 for the nuclear spin of Nb allows A F * A J The large value of transitions to be seen at higher values of J than is normally possible.

Introduction. In German-occupied Belgium during World War II, Malet and Rosen observed a number of electronic bands of gaseous cobalt oxide (CoO) 5000 and 10000 A using the exploding wire technique. between The lower state v"=0 and v"=1 vibrational frequency (i.e., the separation of 69 the vibrational states) was found to be 840 c n r , and this 1 state was assumed to be the ground electronic state. The next spectroscopic experiments on C o O came years later, in 1979. The first was a low resolution infrared spectrum of C o O (with ± 0 . 2 c m - 1 line precision) obtained with a microwave discharge source, giving a vibrational frequency constant e A.70 (B ) of 842.2 cm- , 1 an equilibrium rotational of 0.522, and an equilibrium bond length (r ) of e The absence of a Q branch in the spectrum led to the tentative assignment of a X ground s t a t e , though the possibility was not 24 ruled out that the spectrum was that of a low-lying excited A 1.60 matrix isolation infrared study followed state. 70 shortly afterwards , in 71 which cobalt from a cobalt cathode sputtering source and oxygen were codeposited at low temperature argon. (14 K) into a solid matrix of The ground state vibrational frequency was measured in this work to be 846.4 c m " . 1 In the next year, matrix isolation electron spin resonance (ESR) studies of a large group of transition containing molecules with including CoO. matrices and 7 2 the high spin multiplicities were metal- reported, In spite of high concentrations of C o O within the expertise of the laboratory in conducting 53 experiments of this type, no C o O ESR signal was observed. CoO was therefore concluded to possess an orbitally degenerate ground state, because orbital degeneracy in linear molecules (in matrices of low enough temperature that only the ground state is populated) causes a g tensor anisotropy so large that the spectrum is spread out over such a large magnetic field that it cannot be observed. The E S R spectrum of a paramagnetic 1 state, on the other hand, will possess little or no g anisotropy and will exhibit only a small deviation from the free electron value, g of the overall orbital deduced from the frequency, n B e = 2.0023, due to the spherical symmetry angular relation momentum. ' 7 2 The value of g is 7 3 hv = giiBH, where v is the resonance the Bohr magneton, H the applied magnetic field, and h Planck's constant; the g anisotropy is taken as g_i_ - gn. No further work has been published on C o O since this E S R study, leaving the ground state of the molecule to be the only one of the first row transition metal oxides yet to be established. Field-free atomic orbitals of a diatomic transition metal molecule are split by the axial field of the other atom, as shown in Fig. 3.1.

Experimental III.B.1. Synthesis of gaseous cobalt oxide. Cobalt oxide was made in a Broida-type oven a s s e m b l y follows: as an alumina crucible containing cobalt metal powder (Fisher Scientific C o . ; 0.14% tungsten 74 basket. Ni, 0.11% Fe) was heated resistively The basket was enclosed in a radiation in a shield comprising an inner ceramic sleeve enveloped by an outer copper sleeve and fitted lid, with zirconia felt packed very tightly around the basket. To produce cobalt oxide (CoO) in quantities sufficient for measurable fluorescence, temperatures point of the alumina crucible (1920 approaching the °C) were excess of cobalt's melting point of 1495 ° C . required, melting well in C o O was formed in the gaseous stream of vaporized cobalt atoms, argon carrier gas and molecular oxygen at a pressure of roughly 1 Torr, with a ratio of approximately 150(±15):1 argon to oxygen. Fluorescence, however, occurs only in the presence of laser excitation, which is as with NiO in which only the ground state is populated by the reaction of metal and O 2 . 7 8 Unlike the production of C u O 7 9 , which is more efficient with N 2 O than O2, no C o O fluorescence was observed using N 2 O as the oxidant. The requirement of high temperature drastically hampered the efficiency of C o O synthesis in two ways. First, there was aluminate) extensive formation of Thenard's B l u e 8 0 (cobalt deposits on the crucible and on the surface of the liquid cobalt; this phenomenon was also reported in 1966 by Grimely and coworkers who heated solid C o O in an alumina cell to high Second, produces the an reaction alloy of that cobalt renders vapor the with basket the very temperatures . 81 tungsten basket susceptible to 57 cracking, with breakage occurring after at most three heatings of a basket assembly.

All the lines assigned The transition was assigned as ft' = ft" = 5/2 by the methods used previously for the 6338 A subband, and it appears that the lower state is the ft = 5/2 spin-orbit component of the ground electronic state.

The perturbations in the ft' = 5/2 upper state are illustrated by the plot of the scaled upper state energy levels as a function of J(J + 1) in Fig. 3.8. The A-doubling is much larger than in the upper levels of the ft = 7/2 bands, with the splitting first discernible at Doppler- limited resolution at J ' = 10.5.

The matrix isolation electron spin resonance s t u d y 72 which could not produce a signal from C o O eliminates the possibility for the ground state, taking this absence of a result as valid. condition under which an orbitally non-degenerate 4 £ - as The only electronic state with case (a) coupling can produce no E S R signal when isolated in a low-temperature matrix is if it possesses an odd spin with the ft = 0 level the only one populated. multiplicity The band intensities support an inverted order for the spin-orbit manifold since the ft' = ft" = 7/2 bands are strongest, followed by ft' = ft" = 5/2. The rotational analysis of two same electronic determine the interval, AA. because the state true provides B value For molecules spin-orbit and ft spin-orbit components the an information estimate in which interaction spin is very for of the required to the uncoupling large, the spin-orbit is small effective B value for a given spin-orbit component differs from the true B value 79 A A by an amount that depends on the spin-uncoupling operator, - 2 B J S . A second order perturbation treatment of two O substates separated by A A and connected by this operator produces the relation: Beff.ft = B(1 +2BI/AA) Solving equation 24 (3.12) (3.12) simultaneously for both A A and the true B value for the v" = 0 level, using the effective B Q = 7 / 2 and BQ=5/2 values in Table 3.Ill, gives B = 0.5037; A A - -244 c n r (3.13) 1 The spin-orbit coupling interval A A is not expected to be accurate to better than 10%, as equation (3.12) does not take into account the centrifugal distortion corrections to A and X, called AD and Xo Section I.B.3). FeO 7 5 (cf. For example, the initial estimate of |AA| made for was 180 c m - , based on the approximation in equation (3.12), 1 yet the value was later f o u n d 87 to be 190 c m " . 1 The definition of B, as a function of the mean value of the bond length r during the vibration, is 8 3 B = (h/87i cu)<r > 2 where (3.14) 2 |i is the reduced mass of the molecule. equation With the B value in (3.13), the bond length in the zero point vibrational level is calculated from equation (3.14) to be: r (X Aj) = 1.631 4 0 (±0.001) A (3.15) The 10% increase in bond length to 1.80 A upon electronic excitation to the upper A j state is quite large compared to transitions in the 4 other first row diatomic transition metal oxides. The A n 4 <- X X " 4 transition of V O produces a 7% i n c r e a s e ; A ! , <- X F I r and B I I r < 45 X n 5 r in C r O give 2-1/2 5 5 5 and 5-1/2% i n c r e a s e s ; the 90 parallel transition of MnO at 6500 A shows a 4% 8 £ + <_ 6 £ + i n c r e a s e ; but 91 80 various subbands of the orange system of FeO do show bond length increases of up to as m u c h a s 1 1 % , and a state perturbing the MnO 8 7 A 1 + state has a bond 10% longer than that of the ground s t a t e . 6 91 The magnetic hyperfine structure and spin-orbit coupling constant can be used to give information about the excited states as well as the ground state. The insignificant hyperfine structure in the ground state is consistent with the lack of unpaired s electron density in the 4 A o rc 8 2 2 configuration. 3 The upper state configuration can be assigned as a 7 i 5 a * for three reasons: 2 1) the large, a strong indicate positive Fermi hyperfine contact electrons (cf.

The C X " 1 4 state of V O , with a 3 d 8 o * configuration, is an example where the 2 promotion of an electron from s a to a non-s type a orbital produces a negative value for the I S a interaction constant of -0.00881 c m - , as 1 result of spin polarization. 45 The a * orbital is believed to be a linear combination of 3do, 4sa and 0(2pa). 2) the fact that the Q. = 7/2 and Q. = 5/2 subbands lie very close in the spectrum shows that the spin-orbit intervals A A " and A A ' are nearly equal. o7t 6 a* 2 '6' 3 The 4 A states of the configurations C T C 8 2 2 3 and will have orbital angular momentum coming only from the hole, so that they should have roughly the same spin-orbit couplings. 3) Following from 2), the negative sign of A also suggests a 8 hole, or 8 3 configuration.

Niobium nitride was formed in a flow system by reacting the vapor from a sample of warmed niobium (V) chloride (=80 ° C ) with nitrogen. The approximately nitrogen 1:18 (v/v) was at entrained with argon 1 Torr pressure. in a A few ratio of centimeters upstream from the fluorescnce cell, the vapor was passed through a 2450 MHz microwave discharge (powered by a Microtron model 200 microwave generator). To obtain intermodulated fluorescence spectra, two nearly coincident laser beams were passed in opposite directions across the lavender-colored flame of the discharge, with the fluorescence detected at right angles to the beams through a deep red low pass filter to the photomultiplier tube, as described in Section II.A. IV.B.2. Description of the 0 - A 3 3 spectrum. Broadband spectra of the three subbands of the G> - A system of 3 NbN are illustrated in Fig. 4.1. 3 The middle spin-orbit component, <E>3- A2, is shifted to higher energy rather than being equidistant 3 3 between the presumably outer due to subbands, and intensity is also stealing by an considerably unseen state. vibrational sequences are plainly visible, up to (v',v") = (5,5) 3 weaker, The in the 0>4- A3 subband. 3 At sub-Doppler resolution, the variation in hyperfine structure between the three subbands is apparent from the Q head regions shown in Fig. 4.2.

CD 89 the value of X in both states is zero. hyperfine splitting In the <X>4- A3 subband 3 is considerably larger the 3 than that in 3 <J>2- A-|, 3 since Q is three times as large in the former subband (cf. equations 1.90 and 1.98). The assignment of the densely overlapped 3<j>2- Ai Q 3 head is shown in Figs. 4.3 and Fig. 4.4. 3<x>2- Ai 3 subband, illustrated completely (cf. The low-J R branches of the in Fig. 4.5, are exemplary for their resolved A F * A J transitions and crossover resonances Section II.B for a discussion of these transitions). hyperfine pattern is quite different in the central subband: The at J " = 2 the high F component is on the low frequency side, but at J " = 3 the hyperfine values structure with the reverses order and continues on at highest F component at high higher J frequency. The development of this <X>3- A2 R branch hyperfine structure is shown 3 3 in Fig. 4.6. As the rotation of the molecule increases, spin-uncoupling is observed in the Q branches of the outer two subbands as a reversal in the hyperfine structure: the hyperfine splitting narrows with increasing J until the components collapse into a spike; then they reverse their order and widen with increasing rotation (see Fig. 4.7). Therefore hyperfine structure which begins with its components increasing in F toward increasing frequency reverse to an order in which the F values decrease with frequency. The reversal in the Q branches occurs at J = 27 and J = 38 in the <l>2- Ai and <I>4- A3 3 subbands, transition respectively. is less The sensitive to hyperfine the 3 structure effects of diagonal matrix elements are independent b and c. 3 3 in the <E>3- A2 rotation, 3 3 since The Q branch of its o -»• 3 2 Fig. 4.3.

C. Non-Linear Least Squares Fitting of Spectroscopic Data. In order to acquire the best set of molecular constants in a Hamiltonian, one must iteratively improve an estimated set of constants until a satisfactory fit of the observed data is obtained. In approaching the non-linear type of Hamiltonian typically describing a spectroscopic problem, the Hamiltonian is divided into its two constituents: the coefficients containing number dependence, and the molecular constants, o r H = X X H m=1 m X m the quantum 1 0 3 (4.1) m is the mth parameter (or molecular constant) out of a total of p parameters, and H m is the "skeleton matrix" containing the quantum number dependence of the mth parameter. Hamiltonian may be expressed a s : 1 0 1/2 For example, a simple n 1 0 3 (J + 1/2)2 - 2 0" 2 -[(J + 1/2)2 _1]1/2 + B H-Tr 0 -[(J + 1/2)2 - -|]1/2 0 -1/2 1 (J 1/2)2 + The matrix of eigenvalues (or energy levels) E Of the Hamiltonian is obtained by diagonalization with the eigenvectors U: UtHU = E (4.2) U is a unitary matrix such that the adjoint of U (U^, or the conjugate of the transpose U ) equals the inverse of U (U- ). T 1 The combination of equations (4.1) and (4.2) allows the HellmannFeynman theorem to be employed, which s t a t e s : aE /3X = m 104 fa *(dWdX)*¥ dx m m (4.3) 98 For a single matrix element Feynman theorem b e c o m e s : ii of parameter m, the Hellmann- 103 [UT(aH/3X )U]ii = 3Ei/aX = Bj (4.4) m m Using equation (4.1), equation (4.4) can also be written as: Bim - [UTH U]ii (4.5) m The Hellmann-Feynman derivatives B j m form the derivatives matrix, B, which give the dependence of the energy on variations in the parameters. To apply this relation to an iterative solution of unknown molecular parameters, equation single energy level, E j c a l c (4.2) is expressed in terms of a : Ejcalc = (UtHU)n (4.6) Substituting equation (4.1) into equation (4.6) gives P E p i c = X X (UtH U)ii m m (4.7) m=1 With the relations in equations (4.4) and (4.5), the energy can be written: P Epic = I X B m i m (4.8) m=1 To express equation (4.8) in terms of transitions rather than energy levels, the upper and lower state eigenvalue vectors (E 1 and E") are subtracted to give y, and B' and -B" are combined into one derivatives matrix B. Equation (4.8) therefore transforms t o : y =BX where 1 0 5 (4.9) y is the vector of calculated transitions, B is the matrix of known derivatives, and X is the vector of estimated parameters. If 99 there are N transitions and p parameters to be determined, y has length N, B is a matrix of size N by p, and X has length p. To obtain X , both sides of equation (4.9) are multiplied by ( B B ) - B : T 1 T (BTB)-1(BTB)X = ( B B ) " B y T 1 X = (B B) T _ 1 T B y (4.10) T In a problem where the estimated parameters X are iteratively improved, we calculate parameter c h a n g e s A X . rather than X itself. Equation (4.10) is therefore expressed a s : 1 0 6 AX = ( B B ) " B A y T where 1 (4.11) T A y is the vector of residuals (i.e., the observed transitions minus the calculated). The fitting process begins with a set of estimates for the molecular constants, which are used to generate calculated transitions (ycaic) a n c j {heir residuals (Ay). The set of corrections to the constants, given by equation (4.11), is added to the initial iteration. sets estimates to provide improved constants for the The process is repeated, of calculated transitions, magnitude iteratively next producing improved residuals and constants of the residuals is reduced to a satisfactory until the level, for example, to the vicinity of the experimental precision. The least squares program for the <X> - A system of NbN was 3 3 written in F O R T R A N 77 by the author, except for U B C Amdahl library routines for diagonalizing parameter Hamiltonian changes from matrices and inverting matrices, the Hellman-Feynman for the <D and A states 3 dimension of (21 + 1)(2S + 1), or 30. 3 and calculating derivatives. have a The maximum The 30 x 30 matrices (one for each F) were diagonalized in two steps. In the first step, only the rotational part of the Hamiltonian was diagonalized, in ten separate 100 J submatrices. In the second step, the entire matrix (rotational and hyperfine) was diagonalized. ordering of eigenvalues diagonalization to spin-orbit from step one preserve the original basis functions. the Two steps were employed because the was matching used in the second of eigenvalues with the This is possible because the separation of components is large compared to the perturbation made by the hyperfine interactions.

Initial line assignments were facilitated grating spectrograph work of Dunn e l s i of the P, Q and R rotational lines. 1 0 2 by the unpublished , who listed the positions Initial attempts to obtain a least squares fit to the hyperfine constants in a case (a) basis (i.e., as they were presented in Sections I.D.3 and I.D.4) did not succeed, because the hyperfine constants required to fit the three subbands are not consistent with one another. and In the light of this observation, the unequal first order spin-orbit spacings, it was concluded that the various substates are perturbed differently by second order spin-orbit interactions. this interaction 109 According to the AQ = 0 selection rule for , the electronic states perturbing the <J> substate 3 include ^3,4, T4, 0>3, A2,3 and A2. The A substates can interact 1 with 3 1 3 1 3 0 2 , 3 , <J>3, A 2 , T11,2 and n 1. 1 1 3 1 The 0 1 and A 1 states isoconfigurational with G> and A are expected to be the closest of 3 3 these states to d> and A , and therefore the ones most responsible 3 3 for the perturbations (see Fig. 4.8). central spin-orbit The effect would be to shift the components, <X>3 and A 2 , to lower 3 3 energy. However, the hyperfine constants suggest that there could also be second order spin-orbit interactions occurring with the other members of the manifolds, though we can say nothing about their relative sizes. The o - A 3 3 system of NbN is the first observed instance of a molecule represented by Hund's case (a) which requires modifications to the Hamiltonian because of extensive second order spin-orbit interactions.

This is far from the case in the <x>- A system of NbN, where (b + 3 3 c)+i is 39% smaller than (b + c)-i in the A state, and 10% 3 in 0>. 3 It was also found, in the 3 A state, that two distinct b constants are required in the <X=-1|X=0> and <X=0|Z=+1> elements (referred to here as b.-i/o larger and brj/+i, matrix respectively). Therefore, a total of five magnetic hyperfine constants are required to fit the data, rather than the usual three: h-i, ho, h+i, b-1/0 and bo/+i replace a, b and c. It is clear that the perturbations in the A state are 3 much more pronounced than those in G>. The A b+i/o value is 34% smaller than 3 3 b o / - i , comparable to the 39% difference between the and (b + c)+i constants. 3 A (b + c)-i In the upper state, however, two distinct b values off-diagonal in X are not necessary: two 3 attempts to distinguish 0 b constants produced values that were very highly correlated (-0.998) and with standard errors so high that the constants were indeterminable. It is evident, then, that the A state lies closer to 1 105 Table 4.1.

This is possible since A, B and the effective B values for each subband are related b y : B ff,n = B(1 + 2 B I / A A ) e 24 (4.19) From the B values, the bond lengths are calculated to be: r r There have mononitrides. been ( A) = 1.6618 A 3 0 0 = 16712 A ( 3 < D ) very few rotational studies of transition metal Aside from the current work, the known bond lengths (r , in A) are: 0 TiNln X I 1.583 2 A n 2 r B I 1.646 X I 1.696 2 ZrN^ 2 2 B I 1.740 A n 2 1.702 x I" 1.634 2 M O N 1 1 3 1.597 4 108 A*n 1 -654 The 3d transition metal monoxide series isovalent with ZrN (and TiN), NbN, MoN is S c O , TiO, V O , whose ground state bond lengths go as 1.668 A <\ 3 1.623 A89 and 1.592 Here the bond length A*5. decreases with each additon of a bonding 8 electron. The A and 0 3 3 NbN bond lengths show that the nitrides are consistent with this trend, with values intermediate between those of ZrN and MoN. The very large spin-spin interaction constants X (equations and 1.73) are caused by contributions from the second order spin- orbit interactions which induce the substantial shift of the subband. 1.72 3 G > 3 - 3 A 2 The centrifugal distortion correction to X, however, is considerably larger than its expected value of Xo - X(Ao/A). The reason for this probably lies in the fact that we have not yet made direct measurements of the spin-orbit intervals. In this context, then, the centrifugal distortion correction constants A D and XQ are essentially fudge factors which enable the least squares fit to converge to a minimum lying within a broad minimum which contains the true molecular constants. So although this set of constants is an internally consistent one which fits the data, once the derived A values are replaced by direct measurements the constants change slightly to enable the fit to converge to the true, minimum. may nearby With the data we now possess, however, the A D and Xo values given in Table 4.1 are necessary to obtain a fit. To demonstrate this fact, a fit of the rotational constants was made in which Xo and y were fixed to zero, and all hyperfine constants were fixed at the values determined in this work. The initial values for the floated constants were taken from the grating 109 spectrograph work of Dunn e _ t a i (see p. 8 5 ) , with the exception of 102 AQ which was given an initial value of zero; the parameter 8 in their work is equal to - 2 X . The fit converged to a standard deviation of 0 . 0 0 1 3 cm 8 - 1 , which is about incorporates XD and y. 2 . 5 times higher than the fit which As expected, the final set of constants (Table 4.II) is very similar to those determined by the grating spectrograph analysis, with the exception of To, which was found from LIF data to be 1 3 . 5 c m - 1 higher than that from the grating work. The residuals contain systematic errors in the positions of the rotational lines, as compared to the constants. The random residuals generated systematic errors and by the full higher standard set of deviation reflect the inability of the model to fit the data without XD, AD y. However, other than feature as stated above, the resulting rotational constants, B and D, are only effective of this fit is that the and first ones. order Another important spin-orbit coupling constants A' and A" are 1 0 0 % correlated, as are the second order spin-orbit parameters 4.II). X' and X." (see the correlation matrix in Table This is a direct reflection of the fact that the coupling constants are derived rather than measured. spin-orbit As a result, only the difference A X can be determined, rather than separate X' and X" values. For these reasons, a fit excluding XD and y may produce a set of rotational constants that more accurately represents the real situation, though the addition of XD and y creates a model which is able to fit the data. It is worth noting that in a purely case (a) basis, y, AD and XD are correlated such that only two of the three can be determined. 41 In the 3 O - 3 A system of NbN this correlation is broken 110 Table 4.II.

For the future, a direct measurement of the spin-orbit intervals must be made. forbidden The most likely method for doing this is to locate "spin-orbit satellite" transitions which disobey the (a) selection rule A £ = 0 (equation 1.57). very weak, case Since these transitions are resolved fluorescence experiments can be performed to enhance the signal.

However, it is also important that the excited line be strong, so a compromise must be made between high J and line strength when choosing lines for excitation.

This work examines the B H 2 out-of-plane wagging fundamental of aminoborane (NH2BH2), the simplest alkene in the B=N homologues of the hydrocarbons. Long before N H 2 B H 2 was studied experimentally, its small size and the interest in B-N compounds led to extensive acceptor theory theoretical nature studies of the calculations 120 B-N of it. In particular, the donor- bond atttracted attention, as Huckel done in 1964 predicted that the bond moment was in the direction B to N rather than the reverse, as required by formal valence charge theory. distributions, These electronic preliminary structures calculations, covering and geometries for a number of B-N compounds, were followed by C N D O (complete neglect of differential overlap) 1 2 1 and ab initio 1 2 2 ' 1 2 3 - calculations 1 2 4 predicting these and other properties such as the dipole force constants, barriers to rotation and stabilities. extreme instability at practical difficulties for theoreticians' the room experimentalists predictions. symmetrical temperature, cleavage to Aminoborane's however, verify moment, or imposed refute the It's first synthesis was in 1966 of vacuum cycloborazine sublimed from pyrolyzed at 1 3 5 ° C , where N H 2 B H 2 and other decomposition products could be trapped in a liquid nitrogen cold trap, and then identified by mass spectroscopy 1 2 5 . The aminoborane was found to decomposed spontaneously after warming to room temperature. have In 114 1968, gaseous aminoborane and diborane (B2H6) were observed by molecular beam mass spectroscopy as products of the spontaneous decomposition of temperature. When Kwon and McGee performed both pyrolysis and 126 solid ammonia borane ( N H 3 B H 3 ) at room radiofrequency discharge experiments on borazine (the BN analog of benzene), N H 2 B H 2 a n d B 2 H 6 w e r e again the p r o d u c t s . 127 They were recovered in a -168 ° C trap, then separated by vacuum distillation of diborane from aminoborane at -155 ° C . At this temperature, small amounts of both evaporation and polymerization observed. Polymerization temperatures above this, and The pronounced Pusatcioglu et a l becomes is fairly instability 1 2 6 build the of of N H 2 B H 2 were dominant process significant at -130 monomeric °C. aminoborane at 1 2 7 led in 1977 to investigate the possibility of using NH2BH2 to thermally pyrolyzed gaseous ammonia stable inorganic borane, polymers. condensed the They monomeric N H 2 B H 2 product at 77 K, then allowed it to polymerize as it warmed. In 1979 a microwave spectrum of N H 2 B H 2 was obtained, using a sample formed from the reaction of 5-10 and diborane at 500 ° C . least-squares thereby fit were establishing 1 2 9 Molecular constants calculated by a consistent the mTorr each of ammonia with symmetrical a planar structure aminoborane, rather than the asymmetrical N H 3 B H . configuration, NH2=BH2 for Perhaps the most important outcome of this work was the determination of the dipole moment to be 1.844 D in the direction from N to B, as opposed to the theoretical predictions of B to N . 1 2 0 ' 1 2 1 The assumption of an N B direction for the dipole moment was based on the observation that the dipole moment of N H 2 B H 2 is 0.751 D smaller than that in B H 2 B F 2 . 115 The same group recently reported microwave spectra of five isotopic species of N H 2 B H 2 , improving the constants and geometric parameters obtained in the previous s t u d y . 130 Recently, at the University of British Columbia, the first gas phase Fourier measured. transform infrared spectrum of aminoborane was The synthesis combined the solid-state and vapor- 1 3 1 phase ammonia borane pyrolysis techniques. Solid NH3BH3was heated to about 70 ° C in a flow system maintained at approximately 200 microns, and the vapors produced were passed through a furnace at about 400 ° C , to pyrolyze unreacted sublimed sample. aminoborane's eleven infrared (IR) active were recorded at medium resolution (0.05 band at 1337 c m cm- ). 1 fundamentals present that 1 time the bands of all of the IR 1 3 2 work - active resolution 1 though V5 is vanishingly weak because its dipole appears completed cm- ), with the V4 A-type have been recorded at U B C at 0.004 c m - (see Table 5.1), derivative vibrations being also recorded at very high resolution (0.004 1 Since fundamental Nine of 1 3 3 ' is transform IR study to 1 3 4 a be very has been , with the remainder currently underway.

The Michelson Interferometer and Fourier Transform Spectroscopy. The infrared interferogram transformed with a B O M E M was DA3.002 associated software (version 3.1). recorded and Fourier Michelson interferometer and Three sources of infrared light are available depending on the wavelength region desired: a quartz- halogen lamp for the near IR and visible regions, a globar for the mid-IR, and a mercury-xenon lamp for the far IR. After first being filtered and focused at an aperature, the infrared light passes to a collimating mirror beamsplitter, and where it is reflected as a is divided in two. parallel One beam beam to a continues through to a fixed mirror, while the other is reflected onto a mirror moving at constant velocity. As one of the beams has a fixed path length and the other a constantly varying one, the recombination of the beams at the beamsplitter produces a resultant of sinusoidal waves that are out of p h a s e . 1 3 5 absorbed measured by the sample is The portion of the resultant not at the detector as the interferogram.

Operating at 632.8 118 nm, or 15796 c m " , the laser provides an extremely 1 base of 31,592 cycles per cm of mirror t r a v e l . 136 precise time The cycles, called fringes, trigger spectral sampling at a frequency normally equal to one sample/laser fringe, though the rate can be increased to up to eight times the provided by prevents destructive transition temperature this laser fringe laser excellent: interference frequencies, dependent resulting uncertainty is frequency. and its its by two thermal fluctuations in the The in the phase coherence single-mode other operation closely stabilization laser lying removes optics. The mirror's position is 0.0025 fringes per cm of mirror travel, which even at the maximum translation of 125 cm amounts to a variation of only 0.3 fringes over the length of the mirror's scan. 1 3 6 The interferogram not only requires that its points be sampled at precise intervals, but also that one of these points occurs at an origin that is exactly reproducible from scan to scan. DA3 spectrophotometer acheives this by The BOM EM triggering the commencement of each scan at the ZPD of an interferogram of white light. The beams from the white light source follow the same optical path as that of the radiation of interest, with the incoherent nature of the white light producing an interferogram characterized by an intense pulse at ZPD (the WLZPD), and low intensity amplitudes at non-zero mirror translations. The occurrence of the pulse is precise to well within one laser fringe, so the actual W L Z P D trigger is marked as the laser fringe immediately following the pulse. The result is a synchronization signal which references the points in the 119 IR interferogram to a constant position along the scanning mirror's path.136,137 A Fourier transform infrared experiment is therefore the process of obtaining the infrared interferogram in conjunction with the white light reference interferogram and the time base generated by the He-Ne laser. from the IR These data are processed by Fourier transformation interferogram frequency domain. time domain to an IR spectrum in the The integrals of the Fourier transformation can be understood in terms of the phase differences between beams split frequency by the co reflects beamsplitter. off a When mirror moving a wave with with the IR angular velocity v, the frequency is Doppler shifted by an amount 38 1 Aco = 4JIV/X Expressed as a function of the (5.1) speed of light and the incident frequency, using the relation X= 2TIC/CO, the phase shift b e c o m e s 3 8 1 Aco = (v/c)2co (5.2) The magnitude of Aco is on the order of 1 kHz to 100 kHz, a frequency that can be processed easily as compared to the 1 0 frequencies of IR radiation 1 3 to 1 0 Hz 1 5 itself.

Description | Some unstable gaseous molecules, cobalt oxide (CoO), niobium nitride (NbN) and aminoborane (NH₂BH₂), were studied by high resolution optical spectroscopy. A portion of the "red" system of CoO, from 7000 Å to 5800 Å, was measured using laser induced fluorescence techniques. Three bands of the system, with origins at 6338 Å, 6411 Å and 6436 Å, were rotationally analyzed. The lower levels of these parallel bands are the Ω = 7/2 and 5/2 spin-orbit components of a ⁴∆i electronic state. Available evidence indicates that this is the ground state of the molecule; its bond length is 1.631 Å. This work completes the determination of the ground state symmetries for the entire series of first row diatomic transition metal oxides. The hyperfine structure in the ground state is very small, supporting a σ²δ³π² electron configuration. The upper state, assigned as σδ³π²σ*, has large positive hyperfine splittings that follow a case (aβ) pattern; it is heavily perturbed, both rotationally and vibrationally. The sub-Doppler spectrum of the ³Φ₋³∆ system of NbN was measured by intermodulated fluorescence techniques, and the hyperfine structure analyzed. Second order spin-orbit interactions have shifted the ³Φ₃₋³∆₂ subband 40 cm⁻¹ to the blue of its central first order position. The perturbations to the spin-orbit components were so extensive that five hyperfine constants, rather than three, were required to fit the data to the case (a) Hamiltonian. The ³∆₋³Φ system of NbN is the first instance where this has been observed. The magnetic hyperfine constants indicate that all components of the ³∆ and ³Φ spin orbit manifolds may be affected, though the ³∆ state interacts most strongly, presumably by the coupling of the ³∆₂ component with the ¹∆ state having the same configuration. The Fermi contact interactions in the ³∆ substates are large and positive, consistent with a σ¹δ¹ configuration. In the ³Φ state the (b + c) hyperfine constants are negative, as expected from a π¹δ¹ configuration. The ³∆ and ³Φ bond lengths are 1.6618 Å and 1.6712 Å, respectively, which are intermediate between those of ZrN and MoN. The Fourier transform infrared spectrum of the V7 BH₂ wagging fundamental of NH₂BH₂ was rotationally analyzed. A set of effective rotational and centrifugal distortion constants was determined, but the band shows extensive perturbations by Coriolis interactions with the nearby V5 and V11 fundamentals. A complete analysis could not be made without an analysis of the V5-V7-V11 Coriolis interactions, which is currently not possible because the very small dipole derivative of the V5 vibration has prevented its analysis. |
