117Sn and 119Sn Hyperfine Structure in the Rotational Spectrum of Tin Monosulfide Recorded Using Laser Ablation-source Equipped, Chirped-pulse Fourier Transform Microwave Spectroscopy
Tin metal has been ablated with pulsed radiation from a Nd:YAG laser (λ = 1064 nm). Carbonyl sulfide, diluted in high pressure argon, has been pulsed into the resultant Sn plasma. One of the results of this experiment has been the production of SnS. These events have allowed a rotational spectrum of tin monosulfide to be studied using a chirped-pulse Fourier transform microwave spectrometer. the resolution of the spectrum obtained was sufficient to observe hyperfine structure from the 117Sn and 119Sn-containing SnS molecules. Tin nuclear spin-rotation hyperfine constants are reported for the first time.
