The electronic absorption spectrum of C60 has been measured using a continuous gas phase source which is capable of cooling the molecules to a vibrational temperature below ca. 100 K. The results are in good agreement with a previous high resolution gas phase spectrum reported for the spectral range 595 nm-630 nm, obtained with a pulsed Smalley source [1]. The spectral range down to 450 nm is reported for the first time for a molecular beam expansion and is compared with published spectra obtained in solution [2].
