The high resolution of the one photon experiment (10 MHz) is retained, and the S/N is limited only by the degree of fractionation of the spectrum and the noise induced from the frequency jitter of the pump'' laser. Locking the $3 \mu m$ color center laser to an external reference etalon resulted in an significant improvement in S/N over previous attempts. The data provide intriguing features not seen at lower energies ($v=1$ and $v=2$) in propyne or in other acetylenic molecules at similar density of states. One unique observation from the analysis of the spectrum is the presence of very strong x,y-Coriolis coupling affecting the fractionation of the lines but not the time for which the initial excitation remains localized. We plan to extend our studies at $v=3$ to other intermediate size molecules, such as cyanoacetylene, diacetylene and trifluoropropyne, in order to separate more clearly the effect on the IVR due to the amount of vibrational energy deposited in the molecule and the density of background states to which this energy can couple. en_US dc.format.extent 71220 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title INFRARED/INFRARED DOUBLE RESONANCE: A HIGH RESOLUTION PROBE FOR THE STUDY OF IVR NEAR $9700 CM^{-1}$. en_US dc.type article en_US
