We report the first application of a multiphoton ionization based, mass selective implementation of psec time resolved rotational coherence spectroscopy (RCS) to molecular clusters. This implementation of rotational coherence spectroscopy retains all of the advantages of fluorescence based implementations of RCS and also allows determination of the moments of inertia of molecular species which cannot be size selected via excitation energy or which do not fluoresce. The method is described and rotational coherence transients obtained are presented.
