Quantum control of molecular motion and multiphoton processes in I2by use of ultrashort chirped pulses
Additional Document Info
Ultrashort chirped pulses were used to control the focusing of molecular wave packets and multiphoton processes in I2. Both negatively and positively chirped pulses excite oscillatory wave-packet motion on the B-state that induces laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) from an ion-pair state. The agreement between experimental and theoretical results suggest that the spreading of the molecular wave packet on the anharmonic B-state potential can be controlled by adjusting the phase of the excitation pulse.
