Atoms in Strong Laser Fields

  • Frank Grossmann
Chapter
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)

Abstract

In this chapter, modern applications of laser-matter interaction in the realm of atomic physics shall be reviewed. Our focus will be on the interaction of atoms with strong and/or short laser pulses.
