The experimental data were reported by
(1) D. Chomiak, A. Taleb-Bendiab, S. Civis, and T. Amano, 1994, Can. J. Phys. 72, 1078; and by
(2) L. Dore, G. Cazzoli, S. Civis, and F. Scappini, 1995, Chem. Phys. Lett. 244, 145.
The experimental data cover a fairly small quantum number range. Predictions with uncertainties larger than about 1 MHz should be viewed with caution.
With respect to the Apr. 2000 entry, the new entry considers ab initio dipole moment components from
