The results of a molecular fragmentation learning control experiment were analyzed. An amplified Ti:sapphire laser system capable of producing 30-fs pulses with an energy of ∼1 mJ at a repetition rate of 1 kHz was used for the experiment. The experiments involved fragmentation of trifluoroacetone. A time-of flight mass spectrometer (TOFM) was used to evaluate the pulse shapes. The time domain basis was found to be natural for cases where periodic dynamics play a key role in selective fragmentation.
