Paper Abstract

We discuss recent progress in the attempt to gain complete control over the internal state population of atoms and molecules for collision dynamic studies and spectroscopy. We describe a method which relies on stimulated Raman scattering with pulses delayed in a counter-intuitive way. This method allows highly efficient transfer of population between atomic or molecular levels. It allows, in particular, selective population of highly excited vibrational levels.
