Abstract

We predict that excitation of a nanosystem with a correspondingly phase-modulated femtosecond pulse can cause concentration of the excitation energy at a small part of that nanosystem. The location of the excited site is coherently controlled by the distribution of the phase along that pulse. We discuss unique possibilities of using this in applications, in particular, for nanoscale ultrafast computing and nano-lithography.
