Title: Control scheme of nonadiabatic transitions with the dynamical shift of potential curve crossing

We investigate how the nuclear dynamics at an avoided crossing is affected and can be controlled by the introduction of a laser field whose cycle is comparable to the time-scale of the nuclear dynamics. By introducing the concepts of light-induced effective potential energy curves and dynamical avoided crossing, we describe the laser controlled nuclear dynamics and present basic control scenarios, giving a detailed explanation of the underlying dynamical mechanisms. The scenarios presented allow for examples to understand from a different perspective the results of dynamic Stark control experiments. The proposed interpretation is applied to the laser-controlled nonadiabatic dynamics between the two lowest {sup 1}Σ{sup +} states of LiF, where the usefulness of the concepts developed is elucidated.
