Few-Cycle-Laser-Pulse Induced and Assisted Processes in Atoms, Molecules, and Nanostructures

Part of the Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics book series (SSAOPP, volume 86)


Dynamics of atomic and molecular processes in a strong few-cycle laser field is analyzed with emphasis on the dependence on the carrier-envelope phase. From the laser-induced processes we considered above-threshold ionization and high-order harmonic generation, while from the laser-assisted processes we considered electron–atom potential scattering and electron–ion recombination. All these processes can be treated theoretically using the introduced phase space path-integral formalism.
