Intense few-cycle laser fields: Frontiers of nonlinear optics
The rise time of intense radiation determines the maximum field strength atoms can be exposed to before their polarizability dramatically drops due to the detachment of an outer electron. RecentExpand

Attosecond control of electronic processes by intense light fields
The amplitude and frequency of laser light can be routinely measured and controlled on a femtosecond (10-15 s) timescale. However, in pulses comprising just a few wave cycles, the amplitude envelopeExpand

Delay in Photoemission
Defining Time-Zero When a high-energy photon hits an atom and is absorbed, the result can be the excitation and emission of an electron. This photoemission, or photoelectric effect, is generallyExpand
