Vibrational control is a nonclassical open-loop control principle which proposes a utilization of zero mean parametric excitation of a dynamical system for achieving control objectives. In the present paper, excitations introduced into the incident power of a laser beam in a laser illuminated thermochemical reaction are shown to be capable of inducing asymptotically stable operating regimes with averages located at initially unstable steady states. This opens a possibility of alleviating measurement and actuator related difficulties associated with conventional methods in a stabilization of laser-driven systems.
