High-resolution (±0.003 cm-1), laser induced fluorescence (LIF) spectra of a supersonic molecular beam sample of manganese monohydride, MnH, have been recorded in the 17500-17800 cm-1 region of the (0, 0) band of the A7Π-X7Σ + system. The low-N branch features were modeled successfully by inclusion of the magnetic hyperfine mixings of spin components within a given low-N rotational level using a traditional 'effective' Hamiltonian approach. An improved set of spectroscopic constants has been extracted and compared with those from previous analyses. The optimum optical features for future optical Stark and Zeeman measurements are identified.
