The first determination of the electric dipole moment of a molecular ion is reported. A tunable far-infrared laser was used to measure the Zeeman effect in low-J rotational transitions of ArH+ and ArD+, and the dipole was determined from the isotopic dependence of gr. The result (μ=1.4±0.4 D) is in marginal agreement with ab initio calculations (2.2 D). It is shown that this method can ultimately provide molecular-ion dipole moments accurate to within a few percent. The adiabatic internuclear separations of both isotopes were also determined from the gr values.
