"Structure factors for tunneling ionization rates of molecules: General Hartree-Fock based integral representation"
Abstract:
In the leading-order approximation of the weak-field asymptotic theory (WFAT), the dependence of the tunneling ionization rate of a molecule in an electric field on its orientation with respect to the field is determined by the structure factor of the ionizing molecular orbital. The WFAT yields an expression for the structure factor in terms of a local property of the orbital in the asymptotic region. However, general quantum chemistry approaches in which molecular orbitals are expanded in Gaussian basis do not reproduce their asymptotic behavior correctly. This hinders the application of the WFAT to polyatomic molecules which are attracting increasing interest in strong-field physics. Recently, an integral-equation approach to the WFAT for tunneling ionization of one electron from an arbitrary potential has been developed. The structure factor is expressed in an integral form as a matrix element involving the ionizing orbital. The integral is not sensitive to the asymptotic behavior of the orbital, which resolves the difficulty mentioned above. Here, we extend the integral representation for the structure factor to many-electron systems treated within the Hartree-Fock method and show how it can be implemented on the basis of standard quantum chemistry software packages. We validate the methodology by considering nobel gas atoms and the CO molecule, for which accurate structure factors exist in the literature. We also present benchmark results for CO2 and for NH3 in the pyramidal and planar geometry.

"Weak-field asymptotic theory of tunneling ionization: application with Hartree-Fock wave functions"
Abstract:
The weak-field asymptotic theory (WFAT) of tunneling ionization has attracted increasing attention in strong-field community. Including the first-order terms significantly improve its accuracy as verified for one and two-electron systems. For many-electron systems, its application is limited since the exact wave functions are not feasible. In this report, we present initial steps to establish a framework for applying the WFAT to systems whose wave functions are available at Hartree-Fock level.

"Field-free molecular orientation of OCS"
Abstract:

The Field-free molecular orientation of OCS induced by a two-color intense femtosecond laser pulse (orientation pulse) has been studied. We demonstrate that the orientation degree is enhanced by using an ensemble of aligned OCS molecules, which is created by irradiating with an intense femtosecond laser pulse (alignment pulse) prior to the orientation pulse.

Photoelectron interference from Rydberg states of He in strong laser fields"
Abstract:

Strong laser field ionization of He 2^1P (800nm, ~10^13 W/cm^2) was studied by photoelectron spectroscopy. Observed photoelectron spectra show two strong peaks due to the Freeman resonance to the 5f and 6f Rydberg states, which undergo ultrashort two-photon Rabi flopping. In addition to these prominent peaks, a series of weak interference patterns were identified. Possible scenarios producing the photoelectron interference will be discussed.

"
Development of injection locked laser and its application to continuous wave based optical waveform generati"
Abstract:
We present the injection locked continuous wave laser which can operate at multiple frequencies as well as single frequency. The fundamental laser features such as frequency purity and transverse mode profiles are discussed briefly.  As the advanced features desirable two frequency separation and controllable relative output power ratios are showed. As an application of the injection locked Ti:sapphire laser, generation of 1.6 fs optical pulses with a repetition rate of 125 THz, based on the five phase-locked harmonics using the amplitude and phase manipulation techniques[1,2] are presented.

"A preliminary study on tunneling of doubly excited states of helium"
Abstract:
In the hypersherical picture, tunneling of one of the electrons in a doubly excited state of helium could occur through one of the hyperspherical adiabatic potential, analogous to tunneling ionization of atoms in the presence of an external static electric field. However, there is an additional complication due to the competing decay mechanism of autoionization. We investigate the scenario that doubly excited states below the He+(n=2) threshold are first populated by an XUV pulse and subsequently tunnel ionized by an IR pulse by solving the time-dependent Schrödinger equation in the hyperspherical coordinates. Photoelectron spectra and momentum distributions will be presented with signals of tunneling of doubly excited states identified. The weak-field asymptotic theory is applied to gain insights into these results.
