The molecular constants of the previously unobserved 5 and 6 1Σ+g states of K2 are determined and the potential curves are constructed using the Rydberg-Klein-Rees (RKR) method. The absolute vibrational numbering of the 5 1Σ+g state is obtained by comparing the intensities of resolved fluorescence spectra with calculated Franck-Condon (FC) factors.
