quantum interference excitation

quantum interference excitation
quantum interference or quantum interference excitation,
a technique to control the excitation of molecules by the use of two interfering laser beams, which are passed through hydrogen gas in order to adjust the wavelength of each laser: »

The mechanism that allows the physicists to control the reaction precisely is called quantum interference—the mutual interference of two laser beams as they excite hydrogen iodide molecules to break up in two different ways (Malcolm W. Browne).
