In this paper we report on the energetics and the vibrational structure of the lowest S0→S1, spin-allowed electronic transition of fluorene (C13H10) cooled in pulsed, planar, supersonic expansions of Ar (12 Hz, 150 μs duration for jets expanded through a 35 mm long slit), and interrogated by laser-induced fluorescence. Information on the energetics, microscopic solvent shifts and decay lifetimes of fluorene-Arn van der Waals complexes is also provided.
