Modulation of frequency of electric field during laser pulse for pulse of 2.5 ps duration [see Eq. (12)].
Rovibrational populations of (a) in the states , , and under the action of two sequential two-photon resonant pulses (b) which are optimized to align the at .
Expansion coefficients [see Eq. (18)] for the target states corresponding to maximum alignment when the rotational excitation is restricted to and .
Parameters used for the numerical solution of the TDSE.
Test results arising from the numerical solution of the TDSE for the molecule subject to analytically designed two-photon resonant pulses. The pulses are designed to optimize the alignment of the molecule in its lowest vibrational manifold. Overlaps with optimally aligned wave functions and calculated alignments are shown.
