Einstein A coefficients and absolute line intensities have been calculated for the E2Π–X2Σ+ transition of CaH. Using wavefunctions derived from the Rydberg–Klein–Rees (RKR) method and electronic transition dipole moment functions obtained from high-level ab initio calculations, rotationless transition dipole moment matrix elements have been calculated for all 10 bands involving v′=0,1 of the E2Π state and v″=0,1,2,3,4 of the X2Σ state. The rotational line strength factors (Hönl–London factors) are derived for the intermediate coupling case between Hund's case (a) and (b) for the E2Π–X2Σ+ transition. The computed transition dipole moments and the spectroscopic constants from a recent study [Ram et al., Journal of Molecular Spectroscopy 2011;266:86–91] have been combined to generate line lists containing Einstein A coefficients and absolute line intensities for 10 bands of the E2Π–X2Σ+ transition of CaH for J-values up to 50.5. The absolute line intensities have been used to determine a rotational temperature of 778±3 °C for the CaH sample in the recent study.
