Abstract

We present a monotonic convergent quantum optimal control method that can be utilized to optimize the control field while exactly enforcing multiple equality constraints for steering quantum systems from an initial state towards desired quantum states. For illustration, special consideration is given to finding optimal control fields with (i) exact zero area and (ii) exact zero area along with constant pulse fluence. The method combined with these two types of constraints is successfully employed to maximize the state-to-state transition probability in a model vibrating diatomic molecule.
