Conclusions & Discussion Observation of ro-vibrational levels –up to 17,200 cm -1 (dissociation ~35,000 cm -1 ) –35 frequencies, 18 probabilities Good agreement with theory Resolution –Relative <0.001 cm -1 –Absolute ~0.005 cm -1 (calibration to Li lines) 16

17
Conclusions & Discussion Extend spectroscopy to above 17,000 cm -1 –Use Neon or Helium as probe gasses lower background, lower T –Improve sensitivity lower photon background (timing) lower non-laser induced ArH + (pulsed valve) increase H 3 + –Use improved predictions <0.3 cm -1 (10 cm -1 deviation gives ~10 day search) –Prediction-independent search 17 Sensitivity increased by 10 2 Transitions intensities down to B ij ~10 17 cm 3 /Js 2 Sensitivity limit not reached yet
