The Stark effect was observed for K = 0 and K = 1, J = 1 → 2 transitions in CF3CN. Measurements were made in a Stark modulated microwave spectrometer. The dipole moment obtained was μ = 1.262 ± 0.010 D. An analysis of the effects of electric field inhomogeneities on the observed Stark shifts for K = 0 and K = 1 states is included. Appropriate corrections are given for measuring linear Stark effects in a standard waveguide cell calibrated using a molecule with second-order Stark effect.
