The coherent control scheme suggested by Brumer and Shapiro is recast into a time-dependent framework. We apply this scheme to the photodissociation dynamics of HOD in the first electronic absorption band where the branching ratio between H + OD and D + OH is considered. Electronic excitation is carried out with continuous wave lasers and it is shown that by varying the phase difference between two different excitation paths substantial control can be achieved at selected energies.
