Abstract : The intramolecular vibrational energy distribution of infrared multiphoton-excited molecules is studied with time-resolved spontaneous Raman spectroscopy. For several molecules highly nonthermal energy distributions are observed, indicating high selectivity below the dissociation threshold. Keywords: Lasers, Infrared, Multiphoton, Excitation, Dissociation, Selectivity, Raman spectroscopy.
