Strong Field Nonlinear Optics with Light Pulses of “Subatomic” Duration

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The recent advances in attosecond pulse (ASP) generation have opened the way to a study of light-matter interactions on unprecedently short time scales. To date, the linear response of atoms and molecules to the ASP field has been the focus of many investigations [1]. However, in the nearest future novel ASP sources (such as the proposed XFELs [2]) with intensities comparable to and higher than the atomic intensity (Ia = 3×1016W/cm2) are expected to be accessible. The interaction of such ASPs with matter would be essentially nonperturbative. This brings up the question: What nonlinear phenomena could be observed under these conditions?
