Shaping an atomic electron wave packet.

Abstract

We consider coherent control of the shape of an atomic electron's wavefunction using a train of short transform-limited laser pulses. This type of control is experimentally demonstrated by exciting with a train of three pulses and measuring the resulting quantum state distribution. We also present a general theory for control with a train of N pulses in the weak field limit and discuss the extension of this theory to the strong field limit.
