Stimulated Raman excitation (SRE) of polyatomic molecules provides an efficient and general means for studies of mode specific chemistry. Here we present a simple method for quantifying the amount of vibrationally excited polyatomic molecules that can be created using SRE and demonstrate that excitation of vibrational overtones in polyatomics is also possible.
