Manipulation of molecular rotational dynamics with multiple laser pulses



Manipulation of molecular rotational dynamics with multiple laser pulses



Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics 14(34): 11994-8



In this paper, a theoretical model is proposed to investigate the molecular rotational state populations pumped by multiple laser pulses through an impulsive Raman process based on second-order perturbation theory and an analytical solution for the dependence of the rotational state populations on the time delays and the relative amplitudes of the multiple laser pulses has been achieved. The results indicate that the molecular rotational state populations can be controlled by precisely manipulating the time delays and the relative amplitudes, which can be significantly enhanced or completely suppressed, and so the molecular rotational wave packet and field-free molecular alignment can be efficiently manipulated.
