Coherent control of the ultrafast dissociative ionization dynamics of bromochloroalkanes.

We report on the coherent control of the ultrafast ionization and fragmentation dynamics of the bromochloroalkanes C(2)H(4)BrCl and C(3)H(6)BrCl using shaped femtosecond laser pulses. In closed-loop control experiments on bromochloropropane (C(3)H(6)BrCl) the fragment ion yields of CH(2)Cl(+), CH(2)Br(+), and C(3)H(3)(+) are optimized with respect to that… (More)
