A theoretical study of the infrared optical Kerr effect (IR-OKE) and two-color infrared pump probe spectroscopies was presented. An intense IR pulse to build up large population on a specific intramolecular vibrationally excited state was involved in the method. The femtosecond optical Kerr effect measurement was utilised to detect the time evolution of the nonequilibrium density matrix after a finite mixing time.
