Use of the infrared laser induced fluorescence technique as a spectroscopic probe is discussed with applications to CO2. It is shown how the shape of the fluorescence signal can be used to easily distinguish between fundamental and hot band transitions. Fluorescence and absorption experiments have also been performed with 13C enriched CO2 and result in probable assignments of CO2 transitions for a number of HBr laser lines which are absorbed by CO2.
