AlAg is produced in a supersonic molecular beam by laser vaporization of alloy samples in a pulsed nozzle cluster source. Electronic spectroscopy is studied with resonant two-photon photoionization. In addition to the two electronic excited states previously reported by Clements and Barrow, we have observed ten new states. Vibrational analyses are presented for each of these states, and rotational analyses are given for selected states. The number and characteristics of these excited states are compared to the predictions of recent ab initio calculations.
