The outer well of the NaH C1Σ+ excited state was determined using pulsed optical-optical double resonance fluorescence depletion spectroscopy. The level-selected fluorescence of the A 1Σ+ state is depleted back to the ground state when a probe laser excites the molecules to the C1Σ+ state. A total of 456 rovibrational levels, v = 5-33 and J = 1-11, were observed. A set of Dunham constants and the Rydberg-Klein-Rees (RKR) potential curve for the outer well were reported.
