We report state-resolved absorption cross-section measurement and oscillator-strength evaluation of the gas-phase iron oxide (FeO) orange system near 611 nm. Intracavity absorption spectroscopy (ICAS) with a homemade broadband dye laser was applied for time-resolved measurements of absorption spectra of shock-activated mixtures of iron pentacarbonyl and carbon dioxide (diluted in argon), generating gas-phase FeO. The measurements were performed with a time resolution of 170 μs in the spectral range of 16,316-16,353 cm-1 that includes a large number of FeO absorption lines. Across the 8-cm diameter of the shock tube, ICAS leads to an effective absorption path length of 260 m. Absorption cross-section values of 0.5 × 10-18-4 × 10-18 cm2 were determined for temperatures around 2200 K and pressures of ∼1.3 bar. Pressure- and temperature-independent oscillator strengths for individual ro-vibronic transitions within the 611-nm band of FeO orange system are reported for the first time. These data are generally applicable for quantitative absorption measurements of flame studies of iron chemistry, where FeO plays a key role as intermediate species.
