Some results are summarized on the UV-laser-induced resonant 2-photon- ionization of the benzene molecule. The discussion starts with the general excitation and fragmentation behaviour including some work with psec laser pulses and goes on to spectroscopic information obtained by measurements of fluorescence from the intermediate (1 photon-resonant) states and comparative measurements of ion currents.
