The optical Stark effect in the R13R (0.5) branch feature of the [18.1] Π 12 2 -X 12 -4 (v′, v″ =0) band of rhodium monosulfide (RhS) has been recorded and analyzed to determine the permanent electric dipole moment μe of 3.40 (2) D for the ground X 12 -4 (v=0) state and an upper limit of 1.5 D for the [18.1] Π 12 2 state. Molecular orbital correlation diagrams are used to interpret the relative values of μe for RhN, RhO, and RhS. The Rh103 (I=12) magnetic hyperfine interaction in the X 12 -4 and [18.1] Π 12 2 states is analyzed.
