Abstract

Resonant driving of certain electronic transitions in diatomic molecules is shown to yield collapses and revivals of the electronic populations due to the quantized vibrational motion of the nuclei. We analyze the properties of the vibrational potentials, the frequency and power of the classical driving laser field for which this effect can be observed.
