The optical Stark spectrum of the origin bands of the E3Π0-X3Δ1,A3Φ 2-X3Δ1, and B3Π 0-X3Δ1 electronic transitions of titanium monoxide, TiO, were analyzed to produce permanent electric dipole moments of 3.34(1), 3.2(4), 4.89(5) and 4.9(2) D for the X3Δ1,E3Π0, A3Φ2 and B3Π0 states, respectively. The observations are compared with a simple molecular orbital description for the low-lying states and electronic structure calculations.
