We have used a single laser femtosecond (.)optical frequency synthesizer together with a widely tunable Nd:YAG laser to measure the absolute frequency of several absorption lines in molecular iodine around 532 nm. The use of two different repetition frequencies allows us to determine the number of modes used for the frequency measurement unambiguously. The lines also provide data for the determination of improved ro-vibrational constants of the iodine molecule.
