Abstract

Absolute frequency measurements, with up to 1 × 10 11 level accuracies, are presented for 60 lines of the P and R branches for the ν 1 + ν 3 band of C 2 13 H 2 at 1.5 μ m ( 194 THz ) . The measurements were made using cavity-enhanced, diode-laser-based saturation spectroscopy. With one laser system stabilized to the P ( 16 ) line and a second laser system stabilized to the line whose frequency was to be determined, a Cr : YAG frequency comb was employed to accurately measure the tetrahertz level frequency intervals. The results are compared with recent work from other groups and indicate that these lines would form a basis for a high-quality atlas of reference frequencies for this region of the spectrum.
