Using perturbation facilitated infrared-infrared double resonance excitation of the 85Rb2 molecule, we have observed spectrally resolved fluorescence to the a 3u + state. We have analyzed the rovibrational energy level structure of the 85Rb2 a 3u + state and derived a multiparameter Morse Long Range (MLR) potential and molecular constants for this state, which can be used to predict term values without needing to solve the radial Schrödinger equation.
