Control of IBr photodissociation branching ratios is explored using optimal control theory to design the requisite pulses which produce ground or spin-orbit excited bromine atoms. To conform to experimental pulse shaping limitations, these pulses are confined to a limited bandwidth and further modified by inspection of the power spectra from which extraneous frequency components are removed. Branching ratios using the filtered fields are shown to still provides appreciable selectivity, but with the added benefit of more feasible pulse shapes.
