In this work we present a novel implementation of the Generalized Sturmian Functions in the time-dependent frame to numerically solve the time-dependent Schrödinger equation. We study the effect of the confinement of H atom in a fullerene cage for the 1s → 2p resonant transition of the atom interacting with a finite laser pulse, calculating the population of bound states and spectral density.
