Abstract : Spectroscopic properties of gas phase transition metal oxides and fluorides were investigated using experimental and theoretical techniques. High resolution electronic spectra were recorded for the molecules UO, CeO, GdO, TiO, ZrO, HfO, ScF, YF, and LaF. These data were used to test and develop ligand field theory models for the low-lying electronic states of lanthanide and actinide compounds. Ligand field calculations were used to predict the properties of the elusive UO+ ion.
