Methods are analyzed to find the pulse shape and chirp of the exciting light pulse to generate a given vibrational state of a molecule during Franck-Condon transitions. An example is given for generation of vibrational Schroedinger-cat states. Their remarkable feature is that they have simultaneously two distinguishable distances of the atoms in a diatomic molecule due to quantum mechanical superposition.
