We study molecular alignment by trains of strong, ultrashort laser pulses. Single-pulse alignment is analyzed both in classical and quantum-mechanical regimes. Moreover, we suggest multipulse excitation schemes leading to dramatically enhanced molecular alignment, and define conditions for femtosecond experiments of this kind.
