We show that sequences of femtosecond laser pulses can control the rotational Raman response of a gas mixture, giving rise to a tunable manifold of echo recurrences in the retarded nonlinear-optical response of the gas. Tailored phase masks for high-intensity ultrashort laser pulses are experimentally demonstrated using molecular rotations in the gas phase driven by optimally time-ordered pulse sequences.
