    The effects of pulse shapes with simple phase and frequency modulation (phase proportional to amplitude or intensity, frequency proportional to intensity) are explored numerically. Many such shapes can be generated by combining self-phase-modulation with modern laser pulse-shaping capabilities (which are more flexible for amplitude modulation than for frequency modulation). Even though all of these wave forms begin and end at the same frequency (and hence violate the mathematical conditions for adiabatic inversion), we show that they can generate adiabatic population inversion or suppress intramolecular energy redistribution. © 1994 The American Physical Society.
