We have started to develop a High Resolution Molecular Spectroscopy literature DataBase: HRMSDB. A part of the HRMSDB has been opened to the public at RIO-DB (Research Information Database) of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Tsukuba from January 2005. (
HRMSDB comprises references which report the results of high resolution molecular spectroscopic studies and also of some from related areas such as reaction dynamics, astronomy, atmospheric chemistry, plasma science, and ab initio calculations. High resolution means that the rotational structure is resolved, but the actual coverage of the data is somewhat broader. About 20,000 references published since the early 1950's are collected by one of the authors (EH), and the acquisition of new publications will continuously be made to update the database from time to time. Each record in this database includes the following items: the record identification number, the chemical formula of the molecule (or atom) under consideration, the title and the author(s) of the paper, the name of the journal where it was published, along with the volume number, page(s), and year, and a few keywords. The users can retrieve any word(s) in these items and also derive a KWIC list. Some principal molecular constants, the spectroscopic methods employed, and others worth mentioning are available.
