The photographing and analysis of the absorption spectrum of the NS radical in the 57200 cm-1 to 59200 cm-1 region

The ultraviolet absorption spectrum of the NS radial has never been observed in the region above 57000 cm-1. In this experiment, the region from 57300 cm-1 to 59200 cm-1 was photographed and analysed. Two new electronic states were discovered, a 2∑ state, and a 2Δ state. The vibrational level separation in these states was determined, as wad the splitting in the 2Δ state.
