As a result the observed contour in emission is generally quite similar to the absorption band contour and represents emission from a rotationally equilibrated vibronic level. By the use of narrow bandwidth excitation $(-- 0.2-0.8 cm^{-1})$, however, a non-Boltzmann rotational distribution can be created in the excited state vibronic level which can be reflected in a change in the shape of the emission band contours. By monitoring the change in band contour as a function of pressure one can get a qualitative picture of the efficiency of rotational equilibration in the excited vibronic level. We wish to report here such experiments performed on the $^{1}{B}_{2u}$ zero-point Level in benzene excited by pumping the $B^{0}_{0}(6^{0}_{1})$ absorption band. en_US dc.format.extent 113611 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title ROTATIONAL EQUILIBRATION IN THE EXCITED STATE OF A LARGE POLYATOMIC MOLECULE en_US dc.type article en_US
