The goal of this document is to present a systematic development of the relationship between spectroscopic experiments and the determination of molecular bond lengths in the excited state of diatomic molecules for which a high resolution vibronic spectrum is available. This document can serve as a template for students to use for data analysis of the UV-vis spectrum of I2 or other diatomic gases.
