Abstract: We have recently studied the $\nu_{3}$ fundamental and $\nu_{5} \leftarrow \nu_{6}$ combination bands of $H_{2}CO$ using the technique of intracavity laser Stark spectroscopy, $\nu_{3} (1500.17 cm.^{-1})$ is the $CH_{2}$ scissoring motion, $\nu_{6} (1249.09$ $cm^{-1})$ the $CH_{2}$ rocking vibration, and $\nu_{5} (2843.32 cm^{-1})$ the antisymmetric CH stretch. Previously, values of the dipole moment have been measured for the ground, $\nu_{4}$, and $\nu_{6}$ states of $H_{2}CO$ by molecular beam electric $resonance^{1}$ and for $\nu_{2}$ by our laser Stark studies. The present work brings to 5 (out of 6) the number of vibrational modes for which the dipole moment is known. Extensive results are also available for $D_{2}CO$ and $HDCO$; thus formaldehyde is probably the best characterised polyatomic molecule for the vibrational dependence of the dipole moment, and It would appear to present an interesting challenge for ab initio calculation.
