The permanent electric dipole moments of iron monocarbide were studied using optical Stark spectroscopy. The electric field induced splitting in the high resolution laser induced fluorescence spectra were analyzed to produce values for the permanent electric dipole moments. The dipole moments were relatively small and exhibited significant variation amongst the low-lying states. A comparison with other iron containing molecules and theoretical predictions was also made.
