From a laser induced fluorescence (LIF) experiment on a molecularbeam of CH, we have obtained the b and c hyperfine constants, the γ and γD spin‐rotation constants as well as accurate values for the rotational constants B, D, and H for the C 2Σ+, v=0 state. From measurements of the linewidths, that are partially caused by predissociation, and by comparing relative line intensities, we determined different lifetimes for upper (F1) and lower (F2) ρ‐doublet states of the C 2Σ+ state. For the F1 states we find a constant lifetime of 3.7±1.0 ns, that is independent of N, while for the F2 states we observed an increase in lifetime for higher N up to 8.0±1.5 ns for N=11.
