Abstract:

We summarize the progress made in the first year of our research project. We are progressing in two research directions a infrared-infrared double resonance and b infrared-visible double resonance. The first of these probes intramolecular dynamics in the phase space of polyatomic molecules while the second probes molecular distributions along the energy axis. In this connection we have, for the first time, infrared multiphoton pumped the electronically excited state of a molecule, with a corresponding effect on its visible fluorescence. Author
