Abstract

We introduce an optimal control approach that is capable of yielding the best achievable field-free three-dimensional (3-D) alignment in an arbitrary molecule. Our analysis provides the optimal route to the best aligned state along with interesting insights into the 3-D alignment dynamics of polyatomic systems.
