${\mathrm{CS}}_{2}$ is identified as a molecule for which distinction can be made between dynamic and geometric alignment induced by intense laser fields. Measured anisotropic angular distributions of fragment ions arise from (i) dynamic alignment of the S-C-S axes along the laser polarization vector for 35-ps laser pulses and (ii) geometric alignment due to an angle-dependent ionization rate in the case of 100-fs pulses. Results of classical calculations of the alignment dynamics support our… 

Femtosecond-laser-induced alignment in Coulomb explosion of N2

The dynamic process of laser-induced alignment in Coulomb explosion of N2 has been studied using linearly and circularly polarized, 800 nm, 40 fs Ti:sapphire laser pulses at intensities of 1014 to

Angular distributions of CH3I fragment ions under the irradiation of a single pulse and trains of ultrashort laser pulses

The angular distribution of CH3I is investigated experimentally using a single Fourier transform-limited laser pulse and a pulse train, where a 90-fs 800-nm linearly polarized laser field with a
