We demonstrate time-dependent polarization transfer from molecular rotation to nuclear spin. The ${\mathrm{H}}^{35}\mathrm{Cl}$ $(v=2,J=1,M=1)$ state is excited with a $1.7\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}\ensuremath{\mu}\mathrm{m}$ laser pulse, and then dissociated with a delayed $235\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}\mathrm{nm}$ laser pulse to produce $^{35}\mathrm{Cl}$ atoms. Time-dependent polarizations of both $\mathrm{H}^{35}\mathrm{Cl}$ $(v=2,J=1)$ molecules and \$^{35}\mathrm{Cl}(^{2}\mathrm{P}_{3∕2…
