Attempts to obtain infrared absorption spectra for UO and UO2 were carried out using a high temperature furnace technique in which these molecules were produced by heating mixtures of uranium and uranium oxide. No observable absorption was obtained in the region of the vibrational fundamentals of these molecules i.e., 1200cm to 700cm. Based on these negative observations upper limits for the oscillator strength of UO and UO2 were estimated.
