Molecular systems are presented as possible qubit systems by exploring non‐resonant molecular fragmentation of n‐propyl benzene with femtosecond laser pulses as a model case. We show that such laser fragmentation process is dependent on the phase and polarization characteristics of the laser. The effect of the chirp and polarization of the femtosecond pulse when applied simultaneously is mutually independent of each other, which makes chirp and polarization as useful ‘logic’ implementing parameters for such molecular qubits.
