The 11.9Ω 32 ← X 2Π 32(0,0) and (1,0) bands of platinum monofluoride, PtF, have been recorded field-free and in the presence of a static electric field. The 19F(I 12) and 195Pt(I 12) magnetic hyperfine interactions have been analyzed and compared with predicted values obtained using atomic information and a proposed molecular orbital correlation diagram. The optical Stark shifts were analyzed to produce the permanent electric dipole moments, μCombining right arrow abovee l, of 2.47(11)D and 3.42(6)D for the 11.9Ω 32 and X 2Π 32states, respectively. The observed trend in μCombining right arrow abovee l for the PtX (X C,N,O,S and F) series is discussed and a comparison with IrF made.
