The laser-induced excitation spectrum of the (A) over tilde (2)Pi-(X) over tilde (2)Sigma(+) transition of SrCCH has been recorded at high resolution. A rotational analysis has been performed yielding rotational and fine structure parameters for the A state. In addition, a vibrational frequency for the Sr-C stretch (nu(3)) in the (A) over tilde (2)Pi state has been determined. Using the rotational constant of the A state, the Sr-C bond length was determined to be 2.43 angstrom, which is similar to 0.03 angstrom shorter than in the ground state. A comparison of the Lambda-doubling constant p, to those of the other alkaline-earth acetylides suggests that SrCCH and CaCCH appear to follow the pure precession model unlike MgCCH. Finally, a search for the (B) over tilde (2)Sigma(+)-(X) over tilde (2)Sigma(+) transition was negative, as with CaCCH, suggesting that the (B) over tilde state may be predissociative.
