Abstract

The anharmonic vibrational ladder of nitric oxide (NO) is climbed by irradiating the molecule with femtosecond infrared (IR) pulses. The free-electron laser FELIX is tuned to lambda = 5.3 mu m with a bandwidth of Delta lambda = 0.3 mu m, corresponding to a pulse duration of 150 femtoseconds. Transfer to the excited states of NO is monitored by 1+1 REMPI. Population is found up to upsilon '' = 5, the highest level within reach of the IR bandwidth. The average transfer per step of the ladder is found to be 17%. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
