FIG. 1.

(a) Cut of the potential energy surfaces [CASSCF with cc-pVDZ(6,6)] for , which shows the seam of the CI between the ground and excited electronic states. (b) Sketch of the symmetric and antisymmetric allylic stretch coordinates and , and the torsion angle . (c) Initial wavefunctions of para- and ortho-fulvene, , which are the lowest vibrational and torsional eigenfunctions in the ground electronic state (see also Appendix). Here shown for as a function of and . Figures (a) and (b) are adapted from Ref. 30.

FIG. 3.

Expectation values and [panels (a) and (d)] in the excited electronic state, [panels (b) and (e)] in the electronic ground state, and [panels (c) and (d)] total expectation values for ortho-fulvene (solid gray lines) and para-fulvene (dashed black lines). The thin and broad lines represent the expectation values after excitation with a short pulse with and with a long pulse with , respectively. The pulse parameters are the same as in Fig. 2.

FIG. 4.

One-dimensional cut through the adiabatic potentials and at and , along the symmetric stretch coordinate . The initial wavefunction is shown in gray. The three vertical arrows represent the excitation with three different central laser frequencies: (a) vertical excitation, (b) excitation resonant to the vibrational ground state in , and (c) an intermediate case. The region of the CI is indicated by the circle.

Excited state expectation values and as a function of time in phase space. Here, is the momentum corresponding to the symmetric stretch coordinate . The three lines show the phase space trajectories from to for excitation with different laser pulses. The pulse parameters are (a) and (dark gray line), (c1) and (light gray line), and (c2) and (black line). For each trajectory, the end of the pulse is marked by a ×. The black cross at indicates the starting point at vertically above the minimum of the electronic ground state potential.

FIG. 7.

Maximal differences between the excited state population of ortho- and para-fulvene, , as a function of the delay times between two laser pulses. The pulse parameters are (a) and and (b) and . The data points are indicated by the gray points, the black lines show the envelope of the signal.
