Title: Multiobjective adaptive feedback control of two-photon absorption coupled with propagation through a dispersive medium

Abstract

This work uses shaped femtosecond laser pulses to control the two-photon absorption (TPA) of coumarin 153 in a dispersive toluene medium. The dispersive medium reshapes the pulse along the optical path, and management of this effect is used to achieve spatial localization of TPA. Other control objectives were successfully implemented, including dual localization and high resolution local optimization of TPA. The solutions to these objectives were explored by means of evolutionary single- and multi-objective algorithms within a laboratory feedback loop.
