Laser control of quantum systems
The impressive progress in laser technologies during last few decades has stimulated theoretical efforts directed on utilizing the exceptional properties of the laser radiation for deepening our understanding of fundamental properties of matter.
Clearly, one of the most appealing applications of lasers is to use them for manipulation of electrons and nuclei in a molecular system. That raises an obvious question: What should be a laser pulse which can allow us to control quantum behavior of a molecule?
My research in this field is devoted to the developing of methodologies which can allow one to force the evolution of a quantum system in a desired pathway.
Here I present an interactive model which illustrates resonant control of the populations dynamics in two-level quantum system by an appropriate adjusting of the laser pulse envelope. More details can be found in the following paper.
