Abstract

High resolution measurements on the J = 1 ← 0 transitions of PbO have been performed using a Fourier transform microwave spectrometer. The available transition frequency for the 208Pb18O isotopomer has allowed the rotational molecular field shift parameter for lead, V01Pb, in PbO to be determined for the first time. The parameter gives unique insight concerning how the electron density at the Pb nucleus alters as a function of the Pb-O internuclear separation.
