Abstract : The report is a summary of a research program on the interaction of chirped optical pulses with matter, with a view towards determining what role, if any, adiabatic passage will play in propagation schemes, level population inversion, etc. The work included a study of some of the physics pertaining to the ultrashort pulses at 1.06 microns generated by a mode-locked ND:Glass laser.
