By invoking supersymmetry, we found a condition under which the Stark-effect problem for a polar and polarizable molecule subject to nonresonant electric fields becomes exactly solvable for the family of stretched states. The analytic expressions for the wave function and eigenenergy and other expectation values allow one to readily reverse-engineer the problem of finding the values of the interaction parameters required for creating quantum states with preordained characteristics. The method also allows the construction of families of isospectral potentials, realizable with combined fields.
