The (8,0) and (9,0) bands of the 67/26Σ+ system of FeO+ were studied by resonance-enhanced (1+1) photodissociation spectroscopy with rotational resolution. For the first time, a set of molecular parameters for the 6Σ+ ground state of FeO+ were observed. The Fe-O bond length was found to be 1.643±0.0002 cm-1, respectively.
