The swift improvement of robust pulsed lasers is on the beginning of a conside­ rable curiosity in learning the reaction of an atom, a molecule (or an effective) to a robust electromagnetic box. it really is now attainable to supply on the laboratory scale, ultra-short thirteen pulses with a length of a hundred femtoseconds (10- moment) and an influence of the order 12 of one terawatt (10 Watt). less than those stipulations, very excessive top intensities might be bought and electrical fields exceeding ordinary electron binding fields in atoms are generated. The interplay of an atom or a molecule with such electromagnetic fields has a hugely non-linear personality which results in unforeseen phenomena. among them, - above-threshold ionization (ATI) i.e. the absorption of extra photons in way over the minimum quantity essential to conquer the ionization power and its molecular counterpart, above-threshold dissociation (ATD); - new release of very excessive harmonics of the riding box; - stabilization of one-electron platforms in robust fields. those strategies have been the most issues of 2 foreign conferences which have been held in 1989 and 1991 within the usa below the typical identify SILAP (Super-Intense Laser-Atom Physics).
