Time-resolved infrared-ultraviolet double-resonance spectroscopy provides a sensitive means of studying collision-induced rotational relaxation rates and mechanisms. Relaxation of the 123,10 rotational state in the v4 = 1 vibrational level of D2CO is found to follow electric-dipole selection rules with rates determined absolutely to be as much as five times gas kinetic.
