Laser-assisted coulomb excitation of nuclei

The Coulomb excitation of nuclei in the presence of an intense laser field is considered. It is shown that the laser field not only enhances the cross-section, but also allows the excitation of the nuclei to take place even when the proton energy is smaller than the transition energy of interest.
