We present a detailed experimental study of the D1Π state of the NaRb molecule by means of Fourier transform spectroscopy of laser induced fluorescence. The entire data field for the D1Π state of Na85Rb and Na87Rb consists of rovibrational levels with v=0-39 and J=1-200. The data were incorporated into a direct fit of a single potential energy curve to the level energies using the Inverted Perturbation Approach method. The D1Π state q factors, which describe the Λ-doubling, have been obtained in a wide range of rotational and vibrational quantum numbers. Analysis revealed several perturbation regions in the D1Π state.
