Strong field ionization in arbitrary laser polarizations

Protopapas, M; Lappas, D. G and Knight, P. L (1997) In Physical Review Letters 79(23). p.4550-4553
Abstract
We present a new method for investigating the nonperturbative quantum mechanical interaction of light with atoms in two dimensions, without a basis expansion. This enables us to investigate intense laser-atom interactions with light of arbitrary polarization without approximation, within the model restrictions. Results are presented for the dependence of ionization and high harmonic generation on ellipticity seen in recent experiments. Strong evidence of stabilization in circular polarization is found.
