Abstract

We experimentally present a technique for sensitively determining the laser-induced frequency shifts of the long-range molecular vibrational and rotational levels. The scheme relies on an optical frequency shifter, leading to two laser beams with a precise and adjustable frequency interval. A series of photoassociation spectra are recorded with both beams inducing molecular lines, whose peak separation provides an accurate frequency ruler to measure the frequency shifts of cesium molecular levels, which have not yet been observed in previous reports. The data are compared to theoretical predictions and show a good agreement.
