The Zeeman effect on the F-1/2←3/2 hyperfine component of the R(0) line in the (0,0) band of the A 1Π-X 1Σ + transition of iridium mononitride, IrN, was investigated using a supersonic molecular beam optical spectrometer. The magnetic g J-factor for IrN in the A 1Π state was determined to be 0.96±0.05. The general applicability of Zeeman measurements is described and the g J-factor which is determined is related to plausible molecular orbital descriptions for IrN in the A 1Π state.
