The lowest excited 1Σ g +-type electronic state of C 2, the B′ state, had been studied for years. Investigating microwave discharge of various hydrocarbon mixtures by a high-resolution Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometers, the B′ 1Σ g +1π u emission of C 2 in the infrared was observed. This paper discusses the observation of laser induced fluorescence (LIF) spectra of the D→B′ and C→A transitions of C 2 in a solid Ne matrix.
