Using 550 previously calculated vibrational energy levels and dipole moments we performed simulations of the HCN-->HNC isomerization dynamics induced by sub-one-cycle and few-cycle IR pulses, which we represent as Gaussian pulses with 0.25-2 optical cycles in the pulse width. Starting from vibrationally pre-excited states, isomerization probabilities of up(More)
The authors introduce and describe pulse train control (PTC) of population branching in strongly coupled processes as a novel control tool for the separation of competing multiphoton processes. Control strategies are presented based on the different responses of processes with different photonicities and/or different frequency detunings to the(More)
We investigate population transfer across the barrier in a double-well potential, induced by a pair of time-delayed single-lobe half-cycle pulses. We apply this setup both to a one-dimensional (1D) quartic model potential and to a three-dimensional potential representing HCN-->HNC isomerization. Overall the results for the two systems are similar, although(More)
The counterdiabatic principle [M. Demirplak and S. A. Rice, J. Phys. Chem. A 107, 9937 (2003)] is used in a pragmatic way to formulate a practical control strategy for perturbed population transfer. Interpreting the appearance of population in undesirable intruder or background states as phenomenological consequences of diabatic perturbations, such(More)
A computational investigation of HCN → HNC isomerization in the electronic ground state by one- and few-cycle infrared pulses is presented. Starting from a vibrationally pre-excited reagent state, isomerization yields of more than 50% are obtained using single one- to five-cycle pulses. The principal mechanism includes two steps of population transfer by(More)
When an electron tunnels from a metal into the barrier in a magnetic tunnel junction it has to cross the interface. Deep in the metal the eigenstates for the electron can be labelled by the point symmetry group of the bulk but around the interface this symmetry is reduced and one has to use linear combinations of the bulk states to form the eigenstates(More)
