We consider the numerical optimization of dynamic molecular alignment by shaped femtosecond pulses, and study the scalability of the electric field subject to optimization by Evolution Strategies.The trade-off between fine-tuning of the electric field versus the evolutionary optimization feasibility is investigated.
