In this communication, we wish to report on a novel picosecond polarization method for measuring the degree of rotational coherence that is preserved in photodissociation reactions. The systems studied here are jet-cooled van der Waals molecules; stilbene [4-6] bound [5] to He or Ne with a 1:1 composition.[7]
