A weak excitation by collisions of several of the HgH bands belonging to the electronic system 2π → 2Σ was detected. It was found that HgH was formed in the 2π½ and 2π3/2 (excited) states through a collision process involving Hg 63P and the H2 molecule, one Hg 63P atom dissociating the H2 molecule and a second Hg 63 atom uniting with an H atom to form the excited HgH molecule.
