    • Abstract


      The dissociation of a diatomic molecule in low frequency polychromatic fields of moderate intensities is studied. Genetic Algorithm is invoked to search out a set of four optimal non-resonant frequencies ($\omega_1$ - $\omega_4$), intensities ($\epsilon_1$ - $\epsilon_4$) the and phase angles ($\delta_1 - \delta_4$), for achieving a facile photo dissociation. Time-dependent Hellmann-Feynman theorem is used to gain insight into the frequency resolved energy absorption pattern. The ‘quantum phase space’ structures indicate occurrence of bond breaking dynamics akin to the classical one.
