Abstract

Since the initial development of lasers in the 1960's, a longstanding dream has been to utilize these special intense radiation (light) sources to redirect the outcome of chemical reactions. In the ensuing years, much effort has gone into attempts at making this dream a reality. Emerging recent successful experiments derive from a confluence of ultrafast laser technology, control theory concepts, and suitable pattern recognition algorithms all drawn together to form adaptive machines. The adaptive machines are being used to manipulate chemical bonds, as well as a broad variety of other atomic and molecular dynamics phenomenon. These advances rest on the ability to delicately shape laser pulses so that they act as a special type of photonic reagents.
