Laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy was used to determine the electric dipole moments and excited state Fermi contact parameter of GeCH radical. The spectral linewidth was reduced to 35 MHz using well-collimated molecular beam of radicals. A single upper state Fermi contact parameter was varied to model the observed hyperfine splittings of the 12 rotational lines. It was observed that larger GeCH values suggested substantial spin polarization contribution with higher density of electron states.
