The A  3Π1←X  1Σ+ laser‐induced fluorescence excitation spectrum of the NeIBr van der Waals complex is reported and analyzed to extract information regarding the structure and vibrational predissociation dynamics of the complex. While no definitive geometric information regarding NeIBr is obtained, our data indicate that a linear geometry is at least plausible. The vibrational predissociation lifetimes are a strong function of A state vibrational level and range from 2.6 to 23 ps. The variation in lifetime with vibrational level is consistent with the results of previous measurements on rare gas–halogen complexes, particularly NeBr2.
