"Ultra-Intense Field Physics:Atomic Response"
There is a paradigm shift from high fields (below ~1016 W/cm2)
to ultra-high fields, in terms of basic atomic response to the light
field. Electron motion becomes relativistic, dipole approximation breaks
down, magnetic fields of the light play an important role. What happens to
an atom/ion in such an intense field? How are electron correlation
effects (e.g. 2 electron wave-packet dynamics) modified? I will try to
shed light on some of these topics.
Also, I will discuss some novel techniques that we have developed to
facilitate the achievements of such fields in table top experiments.
