Abstract

Measurement of spectrograms of electrodeless discharges in purified polonium has yielded over 450 red-shaded band heads in Po<sup>210</sup> and more than 500 heads in mixtures of Po<sup>208</sup>-Po<sup>209</sup>. Approximately 350 of these have been classified in a system concluded to be the principal system of Po-Po with the following constants (Po<sup>210</sup>-Po<sup>210</sup>): <i>T</i><sub>e</sub>′=25149.3K ω<sub>e</sub>′=108.532 K ω<sub>e</sub>′<i>x</i><sub>e</sub>′=-0.4417K ω<sub>e</sub>′=155.715K ω<sub>e</sub>″<i>x</i><sub>e</sub>″=-0.3353 K ω<sub>e</sub>″<i>y</i><sub>e</sub>″=-0.0003226 K. Observed and calculated isotope shifts are in close agreement. The dissociation energy of the lower state is calculated to be 1.895 v under the assumption that the dissociation products are normal polonium atoms.
