Decoherence of molecular vibrational wave packets in hot alkaline dimers due to the vibration-rotation coupling is considered. The focus is on the study of observable manifestations of the decoherence process in molecular emission tomography. Criteria are presented for control over decoherence by means of driving molecular transitions with suitably shaped ultrafast laser pulses.
