Abstract

The Zeeman effect in the (0,0) bands of the B 4Γ 52 - X 4Φ 32 system of titanium monohydride, TiH, and titanium monodeuteride, TiD, has been recorded and analyzed. Magnetic tuning of the spectral features recorded at high resolution (full width at half maximum 35 MHz) and at a field strength of 4.5 kG is accurately modeled using an effective Zeeman Hamiltonian. The determined magnetic g-factors for the X 4Φ 32 (v 0) state deviate only slightly from those expected for an isolated 4Φ 32 state whereas those for the B 4Γ 52(v 0) deviate significantly from those of an isolated 4Γ 52 state. The rotational dependence of the magnetic tuning in the B 4Γ 52(v 0) state is attributed to perturbations from a nearby 4Φ state.
