Observations of deuterium-bearing species in several astronomical sources represent a powerful tool to improve our understanding of the interstellar chemistry. The doubly deuterated form of the astrophysically interesting amidogen radical could be a target of detection in space. In this work, the rotational spectrum of the ND2 radical in its ground vibrational and electronic X2B1 state has been investigated between 588 and 1131GHz using a frequency modulation millimeter/submillimeter-wave spectrometer. The ND2 molecule has been produced in a free-space glass absorption cell by discharging a mixture of ND3 and Ar. Sixty-four new transition frequencies involving J values from 2 to 5 and Ka values from 0 to 4 have been measured. A global analysis including all the previous field-free pure rotational data has been performed, allowing for a more precise determination of a very large number of spectroscopic parameters. Accurate predictions of rotational transition frequencies of ND2 are now available from a few gigahertz up to several terahertz. File Summary:
