Infrared-ultraviolet double resonance spectroscopy is used to demonstrate rapid collision-induced V-V transfer between the v6 and v4 vibrational manifolds of D2CO. The rate of transfer is at least gas-kinetic and is explained in terms of Coriolis coupling and rotationally specific, quasi-resonant relaxation channels.
