  1. Melinger, JS; McMorrow, D; Hillegas, C; Warren, WS, Selective excitation of vibrational overtones in an anharmonic ladder with frequency- and amplitude-modulated laser pulses, Physical Review A, vol. 51 no. 4 (April, 1995), pp. 3366-3369 [doi] .

    We show numerically that the complex hyperbolic secant pulse provides robust selective inversion of vibrational overtones. A density-matrix analysis is performed for a ten-level Morse-oscillator approximation of a diatomic molecule. We also show that in the limit of adiabatic excitation the complex-hyperbolic-secant pulse yields an inversion spectrum that is narrower than its spectral bandwidth. © 1995 The American Physical Society.
