Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The possibilities of producing Schroedinger catlike superpositions of the vibrational states during Franck-Condon vibronic transitions in molecules or in crystals are discussed. For extremely short pulses, coherent superposition states that are the vibrational analog of the optical Schrodinger cat states were observed. This chemical cat state could lead to the original paradox of Schrodinger.
