In this paper we report the first application of Ionization-Detected Stimulated Raman Spectroscopy (IDSRS) to a polyatomic system, benzene. In previous studies performed on nitric oxide, IDSRS has shown potential for providing many orders of magnitude increase in sensitivity for very high-resolution studies of weak Raman scatterers. The present work not only establishes the application of IDSRS to larger molecular systems, but gives a striking illustration of the selectivity available in such a multistep excitation scheme. The "Raman-double-resonance" condition, involving the resonant UV ionization of molecules that have been vibrationally excited by the stimulated Raman process, is shown to provide a means of separating complex spectra of two overlapping vibrational bands. This "tagging" of the individual bands will be an effective aid in the identification and assignment of their spectral features.
