Abstract

The possibility of controlling the photo-dissociation dynamics of I 2- in water was investigating using a linearized optimal control method. Optimized pulses were designed using an ensemble of photodissociation samples, aiming at the creation of localized dissociation wave packets. Effective optimal pulses, that were designed using a statistically averaged effective dissociation potential, were also introduced. It was found that the effective optimal pulses semiquantitatively reproduced the control achievements calculated by the optimal pulses.
