Author(s): Kenta Kitano, Hirokazu Hasegawa, and Yasuhiro Ohshima
We theoretically show and experimentally verify that a pair of linearly polarized intense femtosecond pulses can create molecular ensembles with oriented rotational angular momentum on an ultrafast (∼ps) time scale, when the delay and the mutual polarization between them are appropriately arranged...
