Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The ground-state dipole moment of SrF was measured by the molecular-beam laser-microwave double-resonance method. From the study of two vibrational states the coefficients in the vibrational expansion μ = μe + μI(ν + 1/2) were determined as νe = 3.4676(10) D and μI = 0.0575(10) D (with the statistical standard deviation given in parentheses). The measured values are compared with the results of an ionic bonding model.
