Abstract:

The integrated absorption coefficients of the 0,0 bands for the transitions Sigma - Sigma and triplet Delta - triplet Delta of the ZrO molecule were studied in a plasma of a reflected shock wave. The integrated absorption coefficients were determined as a function of the shock wave temperature and the results confirm that the ground state of ZrO is XSigma and that the next excited state is a triplet Delta at 1700 or - 250cm.
