We have measured the overtone spectrum of the CH stretching mode in HCN–HF. The vibrational predissociation rate is approximately twice that previously determined for fundamental excitation, whereas the complexation induced frequency shift is only marginally larger than that of the fundamental spectrum. These results are discussed in terms of a first-order perturbation theory treatment as set forth by LeRoy, Davies, and Lam [J. Phys. Chem. 95, 2167 (1991)]. We suggest that the frequency shift observed here might not only be due to complexation, but also to a long-range anharmonic interaction.

    Time-resolved infrared–ultraviolet double resonance (IR-UV DR) spectroscopy is used to characterize complex rovibrational levels in the highly perturbed ν2+3ν3 region (∼11 600 cm-1) of gas-phase acetylene, C2H2. Here, very few of the known rovibrational levels have appreciable...

    The calculation of rovibrational transition energies and intensities is often hampered by the fact that vibrational states are strongly coupled by Coriolis terms. Because it invalidates the use of perturbation theory for the purpose of decoupling these states, the coupling makes it difficult to...
