Two electronic transitions at 512.3 and 250 nm of linear-C5H+ are detected following mass-selective deposition of m/z = 61 cations into a 6 K neon matrix and assigned to the 1 1Π←X 1Σ+ and 1 1Σ+←X 1Σ+ systems. Five absorption systems of l-C5H with origin bands at 528,7, 482.6, 429.0, 368.5, and 326.8 nm are observed after neutralization of the cations in the matrix and identified as transitions from the X 2Π to 1 2Δ, 1 2Σ , 1 2Σ+, 2 2Π, and 3 2Π electronic states. The assignment to specific structures is based on calculated excitation energies, vibrational frequencies in the electronic states, along with simulated Franck–Condon profiles.
