We present an overview of developments using the nonresonant dynamic Stark effect within the fields of time-resolved molecular dynamics and quantum control, drawing on examples from our own recent work. Particular emphasis is placed on the notion that "dynamics" and "control" are not distinct disciplines and that a clear synergy exits between these areas which has, up to now, been somewhat underexploited. The dynamic Stark effect is a universal interaction which we expect to have broad applicability. © 2011 American Chemical Society.
