The vibronic level spectrum of the ground state of the alkali trimer Na3 has been observed via stimulated emission spectroscopy of a supercooled metal cluster beam. Results reported herein use the C state as an intermediate, and reveal strong transitions to combinations of the symmetric stretch and bending modes, along with highly detailed fine structure.
