A new quantum control scheme for general multilevel systems using intense laser fields is proposed. In the present scheme, the target subspace consisting of several quantum levels is effectively isolated by applying intense cw lasers with specific conditions. The formulation is carried out using the Green function with the help of projection operator method. Dynamics of the isolated target subspace is governed by an effective Hamiltonian. The developed scheme is applied to the quantum control of dissipative four- and five-level systems. It is clarified that the present method makes it possible not only to manipulate the coherent population dynamics but also to suppress the dissipative dynamics.
