In this paper, we report experimental results on the locking of dephasing of molecules in the gas phase. The locking of inhomogeneous dephasing of the B ← X transition of iodine is achieved by using multiple-pulse and phase-coherent laser excitation, instead of a single-pulse excitation. We detect the locking using echo techniques. The locking concept is extended to the problem of intramolecular dephasing, emphasizing the potential for controlling selectivity in laser chemistry.
