We predict that photocyclization of trans-stilbene to 4a,4b-dihydrophenanthrene (DHP) can be achieved
with a femtosecond-scale laser pulse. Specifically, we have performed dynamical simulations in which
the original trans-stilbene molecule is observed first to isomerize to cis-stilbene (as an excited-state inter-
