AbstractThe application of nonresonant lasers to quantum systems can modify energy levels in a general way. This approach, using the nonresonant dynamic Stark effect, is an effective mechanism for modifying chemical dynamics. These molecular techniques have analogous implementations in quantum technologies. Applications include controlling vacuum fluctuations to create molecular alignment and broadband light sources, photonic catalysis, quantum memories in atomic vapours, and photonics in bulk diamond phonons. The links between these different applications are investigated. © 2011 IEEE.
