Abstract: Low-J rotational levels in the $V_{4} - 2$ vibrational level of the $H_{2}CO\tilde{A}^\pm A_{2}$ state are excited by a Nd:YAG pumped frequency-doubled dye laser. An electric field is applied in a direction perpendicular to the linear laser polarization. Quantum beats are observed between $|M|$ and $|M\pm2|$ levels originating from the same $J_{ka}, K_{c}$ asymmetry component. The electric field is varied over the interval 1 to 5kv/cm and quantum beats in the 4-40 MHz range are observed with an accuracy of $\pm 0.02$ MHz. The dependence of the measured Stark coefficient on J and $K_{a}$ is a probe of Coriolis perturbations within the $\tilde{A}$ state and Interactions between the prepared $\tilde{A}$ level and the ""lumpy continuum"" of the $\tilde{X}$ state.
