Abstract: CS2 molecules are spatially aligned upon irradiation by intense (1–100 TW cm−2), 35 ps pulses of 512 nm or 355 nm light. When both colours are simultaneously present, spatial alignment disappears. We draw analogy with weak-field illumination of an atom by two colours wherein EIT (electromagnetically induced transparency) inhibits absorption by virtue of dipoles not being induced in two-colour fields. In the strong-field scenario, molecular alignment is a consequence of a dipole being induced in the direction of the applied electric field. It follows, therefore, that when dipoles are not induced, no spatial alignment is to be expected.
