Strong -Field Phenomena in Molecules

Abstract

We are all influenced by Nicolai Delone’s research. Through much of his career, his influence reached Canada through his published papers. However, Professor Delone visited the National Research Council of Canada’s laboratories at least three times from about 1989 to 1995. At that time he was primarily interested in stabilization. Stabilization refers to the fact that, as the intensity of laser light illuminating an atom is increased, the ionization rate passes through a maximum, then falls. Surprisingly the atom becomes stable against ionization at very high intensities.
