ME 501 Spectroscopy of Diatomic Molecules Example Problem A beam of infrared laser light passes through a cell filled with HF (hydrogen fluoride). A series of P - and R -branch absorption lines are observed when the laser frequency matches a vibration- rotation transition in HF. The laser excites the molecules from the  v= 1 lower level to the    vv 21 upper vibrational level. For P -branch lines,     J J 1, where J is the rotational quantum number of the upper level and
