The dynamics of the IR emission induced by excitation of the acetylene molecule at the 3(2) Ka2, A1Au<--4(1) la1, X1Sigmag+ transition was investigated. Vibrationally resolved IR emission spectra were recorded at different delay times after the laser excitation pulse. The observed IR emission was assigned to transitions between vibrational levels of the acetylene molecule in the ground state. Values of the relaxation parameters of different vibrational levels of the ground state were obtained. The Ti-->Tj transition was detected by cavity ring-down spectroscopy in the 455 nm spectral range after excitation of the acetylene molecule at the same transition. Rotationally resolved spectra of the respective transition were obtained and analyzed at different delay times after the laser excitation pulse. The dynamics of the S1-->Tx-->T1-->S0 transitions was investigated, and the relaxation parameter values were estimated for the T1 state.
