We report here an experimental approach that enables measurement of weak transitions to a wide range of rovibrational levels of water in the energy region 27,000-34,200 cm(-1). We have previously demonstrated the use of laser double-resonance overtone excitation to access highly excited vibrational levels from single rovibrational states. Although this(More)
We employ triple-resonance vibrational overtone excitation to access quasibound states of water from several fully characterized bound states of the molecule. Comparison of the measured dissociation spectra allows a rigorous assignment of rotational quantum numbers J, nuclear spin and parity, and a tentative vibrational characterization of the observed(More)
A joint experimental and first-principles quantum chemical study of the vibration-rotation states of the water molecule up to its first dissociation limit is presented. Triple-resonance, quantum state-selective spectroscopy is used to probe the entire ladder of water's stretching vibrations up to 19 quanta of OH stretch, the last stretching state below(More)
We summarize here our experimental studies of the high rovibrational energy levels of water. The use of double-resonance vibrational overtone excitation followed by energy-selective photofragmentation and laser-induced fluorescence detection of OH fragments allowed us to measure previously inaccessible rovibrational energies above the seventh OH-stretch(More)
Quantum beat spectroscopy is combined with triple-resonance vibrational overtone excitation to measure the Stark coefficients (SCs) of the water molecule for 28 rovibrational levels lying from 27,600 to 41,000 cm(-1). These data provide a stringent test for assessing the accuracy of the available potential energy surfaces (PESs) and dipole moment surfaces(More)
