Using fluorescence excitation, dispersed fluorescence, and hole-burning spectroscopy, it was shown that 1-methoxynapthalene forms two isomeric dimers in the cold environment of a supersonic jet. Unlike the case of naphthalene, both the isomeric dimers of 1-methoxynaphthalene exhibited sharp transitions in the fluorescence excitation spectra. Following light absorption to the S1 electronic state, the dimers emitted excimer emission. The dynamical characteristics for transition from the locally excited to the excimer states of the two dimers were different.
