ABSTRACT
We demonstrate a new method for coherent control of bond excitation in the strong field regime. We can selectively excite one or more Raman-active modes in a molecular liquid without the need for externally generated coherent sources separated by the Stokes frequency. The method employs excitation with an intense, ultrafast, shaped pulse in a learning control loop. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
