The authors two-photon work on benzene has produced a rich spectrum, on the basis of which they were able to make the first assignment for this molecule, based on two-photon spectroscopy. In fact this is the first polyatomic molecule assigned by this method. The authors have also completed an extensive theory paper which includes rotational effects in two-photon theory. Previously they have shown that ignoring this effect can, and has, lead to misassignments in the spectra. From the rotational envelopes, one can calculate the Coriolis constants directly. The submitted papers are included as part of this report.
