Abstract

We illustrate a new phenomenon in the dynamics of molecular ensembles subjected to moderately intense, far-off-resonance laser fields, namely, field-driven formation of perfectly ordered, defect-free assembly. Interestingly, both the arrangement of the constituting molecules within the individual assembly and the long-range order of the assembly with respect to one another are subject to control through choice of the field polarization. Relying on strong induced dipole-induced dipole interactions that are established in dense molecular media, the effect is expected to be general.
