Single-active-electron analysis of laser-polarization effects on atomic/molecular multiphoton excitation.


We theoretically explore the effects of optical ellipticity on single-active-electron multiphoton excitation in atoms and (nearly) spherical molecules irradiated by intense polarized laser fields. This work was motivated by the experimental and theoretical studies of Hertel et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 023003 (2009) and Phys. Rev. A 79, 053414 (2009)], who… (More)
