2 Introduction The spectrum of sulfur dioxide is obviously of interest as an atmospheric pollutant monitoring tool especially after a volcanic eruption. It is also present in the Venus atmosphere and has recently been discovered in the atmosphere of Io. The spectrum of the normal isotopic species, 32 S 16 O 2 has been very well studied. However, that of the 34 SO 2 species which is 4% abundant has only been studied in natural samples. In this work we have recorded the spectra of a number of bands of a sample enriched to 95.3% in 34 SO 2 and retrieved much improved spectroscopy constants of this isotopic species.

3 The fundamental bands: ν 1 (8.7μm),ν 2 (19.5μm), ν 3 (7.4μm) The combination bands: ν 2 + ν 3 (5.4μm),ν 1 + ν 3 (4.0μm) 2ν 3 (3.7μm) and 2ν 1 + ν 3 (2.8μm). The hot bands: 2ν 2 ‑ ν 2, 3ν 2 ‑ 2ν 2, ν 1 + ν 2 ‑ ν 2, ν 2 + ν 3 ‑ ν 2, ν 1 + ν 2 + ν 3 ‑ ν 2 Bands of 34 S 16 O 2 Accurate rotational levels for the: (000), (010), (020), (030), (100), (001), (110), (011), (101), (002), (111), (201) vibrational states.

4 EXPERIMENTAL DETAILS Sulfur dioxide sample enriched in 34 SO 2 (95.3 %) Bruker IFS 120 HR (PNNL) evacuated to about 4 Pa (0.030 Torr). Potassium bromide beamsplitter. Detectors: Liquid helium silicon bolometer from 410 cm-1 to 660 cm-1 Mercury cadmium telluride from 1000 cm-1 to 2000 cm-1 Indium antimonide detector from 2200 cm cm-1. Pressure measured with three MKS Baratron manometers (1, 10 or 1000 Torr full scale) (stated uncertainty of 0.05 % of full scale). Cells: cm cell temperature regulated to 24.36C +/- 0.1 C White type long path cell at room temperature of about 21.5+/- 1.0C

6 Initial line assignments performed: either by following line series and using combination differences to verify the J and Ka assignments, or by using predictions based on the corresponding spectra analyzed for the main isotopic species. ANALYSIS Then the various ground state combination difference obtained in this work were used together with all existing microwave, sub millimeter and terahertz rotational frequencies to obtain an improved set of ground state rotational constants. Finally these GS constants were used to calculate the upper state energy levels of the assigned bands..
