The optical Stark spectrum of the E(0) - X1 (1,0) band of thorium monoxide, ThO, was recorded and analyzed to determine the permanent electric dipole moments, , for the E(0) (v 1) and X 1 (v 0) states. Values of 2.782 0.012 D (X) and 3.534 0.010 D (E) were obtained. The uncertainties are 2 statistical error. The systematic errors are estimated to be less than 1. The experimental results are used to access the quality of electronic structure calculations of the properties of the X 1 (v 0) state.
