The technique of high-resolution Fourier transform spectroscopy has been used to detect the laser-induced fluorescence spectrum of the CCN free radical. Emission from a single vibronic level in the A 2Δ state to the X 2Π state yielded rotational constants for several vibronic levels of the ground state. From the analysis of the 0v21 levels the size of the Renner–Teller interaction was determined, yielding ε=0.410.
