Abstract:

A summary is given of experimental and theoretical accomplishments in the following areas development of double resonance microwave techniques and their application to the testing of quantum number assignments and of relaxation phenomena in gaseous systems design and application of a modulation type spectrometer which does not utilize the Stark effect analysis of microwave spectra of molecules having internal rotation and extracting therefrom the barrier to internal rotation microwave spectroscopy of 63 chemical species, with particular attention given to molecular structure and the effects of vibrational motion quantum mechanical calculations of energy levels, especially with respect to error bounds to expectation values and to the utilization density matrix methods. A list of the 111 papers generated as a result of the work is included.
