Intracavity laser absorption spectroscopy has been used to record rotationally resolved electronic spectra of Pt2 in the near infrared. The metal dimers were created using a 50 mm-long, platinum-lined hollow cathode plasma discharge. The observed transition at 12 937 cm−1 is identified as the (1,0) band of System VI, with state symmetries Ω = 0 – X Ω = 0.
