Abstract

The coherent transient enhancement of optically induced resonant transitions was discussed. Using pulse shaping techniques, the total transient population was enhanced by inducing constructive interference, and for 100 fs pulses, an enhancement by a factor of about 2.5 was demonstrated. The results showed that the population transient peak remains nearly constant, even when the absorption coefficient was increased by over three order of magnitude.
