The polarization pulse shaping was applied to the control of two-photon absorption in atomic rubidium. It was shown that the technique enables the manipulation of the transient vector properties of a light matter interaction. It was established that control can be exerted on the angular distribution of the final state. The ability to control the final state population of a nearly degenerate system and to perform M-state resolved spectroscopy were demonstrated.
