We formulate a microcanonical distribution for an arbitrary one-electron triatomic molecule. This distribution can be used to describe the initial state in strongly-driven two-electron triatomic molecules. Namely, in many semiclassical models that describe ionization of two-electron molecules driven by intense infrared laser fields in the tunneling regime initially one electron tunnels while the other electron is bound. The microcanonical distribution presented in this work can be used to…

Multi-centre molecules driven by intense laser fields
In this dissertation we investigate the underlying mechanisms for double ionisation in atoms and frustrated double ionisation in multi-centre molecules. We first study the main mechanisms that
