Abstract / Description:The frequencies and line strengths of the (2)Pi(3/2) J = 5/2-3/2 rotational transition of (OH)-O-17 have been calculated from an analysis of its far-infrared laser magnetic resonance spectrum. These results have been used to make the first detection of a pure rotational transition of (OH)-O-17 in the ISM. Two resolved components of this transition appear in absorption towards the giant molecular cloud Sagittarius B2, which was observed at a spectral resolution of 33 km s(-1) with the Fabry-Perot mode of the ISO Long Wavelength Spectrometer. The corresponding transition of (OH)-O-18 was also observed and its line shape was modelled using H. measurements. The O-18/O-17 ratio of 3.5 was then used to compare this with the observed (OH)-O-17 line shape.
