Saturated absorption spectra of the ν1 fundamental band of CH3I are recorded with a cavity-enhanced cell and a tunable difference frequency generation source having an 86-cm-1 range. The recorded spectral lines are 250 kHz wide, and most of them are resolved into the individual hyperfine components. The Coriolis interaction between the v 1=1 and (v2,v6l)=(1,22) states locally perturbing the hyperfine structures is analyzed to yield the Coriolis and hyperfine coupling constants with uncertainties similar to those in typical microwave spectroscopy. The spectrometer has demonstrated the potential for precisely determining the energy structure in the vibrational excited states.
