We analyze the doubly differential electron momentum distribution in above-threshold ionization of atomic hydrogen by a linearly-polarized mid-infrared laser pulse. We reproduce side rings in the momentum distribution with forward-backward symmetry previously observed by Lemell \textit{et al.} in Phys. Rev. A \textbf{87}, 013421(2013), whose origin, as far as we know, has not been explained so far. By developing a Fourier theory of moir\'{e} patterns, we demonstrate that such structures stems…

Model calculations for helium at 780 nm and intensities near W/${\mathrm{cm}}^{2}$ show that the effect of the field on the total probability of promoting an electron from the ionic ground state is small, but the laser alters the final excited-state populations, rapidly ionizing any excited bound states.

It is widely believed that intense-field ionization occurs either though a ‘multiphoton’ mechanism (for Keldysh parameter γ > 1) or through a tunnelling mechanism (or ‘field ionization’), for γ < 1.

It is demonstrated that contributions from the direct tunneling processes in the absence of rescattering are not sufficient to describe the observed ATI spectra, and the high-energy portion of the spectrum, including recently discovered rings, are due to rescattering processes.
