This paper considers the inversion problem related to the manipulation of quantum systems using laser-matter interactions. The focus is on the identification of the field free Hamiltonian and/or the dipole moment of a quantum system. The evolution of the system is given by the Schrödinger equation. The available data are observations as a function of time corresponding to dynamics generated by electric fields. The well-posedness of the problem is proved, mainly focusing on the uniqueness of the solution. A numerical approach is also introduced with an illustration of its efficiency on a test problem.
