Studies of ultrafast molecular dynamics induced by intense laser fields can reveal new approaches to manipulating chemical reactions in the strong-field regime. Here, we show that intense few-cycle laser pulses can induce the spin-orbit state-selective C-I dissociation of the iodomethane cation (CH3I+) in the X̃ electronic state. Irradiation of CH3I by 6 fs… CONTINUE READING
