Abstract:

Two photon spectra of OsO4 in the region below the first strong one photon transition are observed and analyzed. The data fit a linear Jahn-Teller Txt calculation. An assignment of the two photon features as arising from a T sub 1 electronic state, origin at 27,295cm, with a dominant linear Jahn-Teller active t sub 2 vibration nu sub 3, nu sub 3588cmnu sub 3 1960 cm, and with Jahn-Teller parameter D0.5 is proposed. Based on these findings the two observed one photon states are discussed and qualitatively analyzed in a parallel fashion.
