Classical Trajectory Models for Laser-Atom and Laser-Molecule Interactions
When an atom or a small molecule in the gas phase is exposed to an intense laser field, a complex response is generally induced. In the present context, “intense” signifies a peak-field intensity in the range between 1014 and 1016 W/cm2, assuming a wavelength of typically 800 nm. Such a laser pulse triggers a violent rearrangement of valence electrons in the atom or molecule.

The research on D3 + was supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), Japan (Grant-in-Aid for Specially Promoted Research on Ultrafast Hydrogen Migration No. 19002006), Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research No. 21-09238, and the Global COE Program “Chemistry Innovation through Cooperation of Science and Engineering” of the University of Tokyo. The numerical calculations on laser-driven C were carried out at the RIKEN Integrated Cluster of Clusters.
