The method of laser-induced reaction (LIR) is used to obtain high-resolution IR spectra of CH2D(+) in collision with n-H2 at a nominal temperature of 14 K. For this purpose, a home-built optical parametric oscillator (OPO), tunable in the range of 2500-4000 cm(-1), has been coupled to a 22-pole ion trap apparatus. In total, 112 lines of the ν1 and ν4 bands have been recorded. A line list is inferred from a careful analysis of the shape of the LIR signal. Line positions have been determined to an accuracy of 1 × 10(-4) cm(-1), allowing for the prediction of pure rotational transitions with MHz accuracy. In addition, an IR-THz double-resonance LIR depletion technique is applied to H2D(+) to demonstrate the feasibility for pure rotational spectroscopy with LIR.
