Small open-shell metal containing molecules are ideal venues for testing Fundamental Physics (e.g. electron Electric dipole Moment, eEDM), investigating relativistic effects on bonding, probing stellar magnetic fields, and modeling spin-orbit induced unimolecular dynamics. Electronic spectroscopy is an effective method for probing these phenomena because such spectra are readily recorded at an accuracy of 0.0001cm-1 both field-free and in the presence of static electric (Stark spectra) and magnetic (Zeeman spectra) fields from which the permanent electric dipole moment and the magnetic dipole moment are derived. Following a general description of the experiments and spectral characterization, two studies will be highlighted: a) optical spectrum of SiHD, b) Stark and Zeeman studies of AuS and AuO.
