Of the various optical double resonance techniques available to laser spectroscopists, that involving the combination of infrared and ultraviolet radiation has until recently received relatively little attention [1]. We have developed a time-resolved infrared-ultraviolet double resonance (IRUVDR) technique [2] and have applied it extensively to spectroscopic and energy transfer studies of the molecules D2CO and HDCO [3–5].
