On the influence of pulse shapes on ionization probability

Faria, C. F. D. M., Fring, A. & Schrader, R. (1998). On the influence of pulse shapes on ionization probability. Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, 31(3), pp. 449-464. doi: 10.1088/0953-4075/31/3/013


We investigate analytical expressions for the upper and lower bounds for the ionization probability through ultra-intense shortly pulsed laser radiation. We take several different pulse shapes into account, including in particular those with a smooth adiabatic turn-on and turn-off. For all situations for which our bounds are applicable we do not find any evidence for bound-state stabilization.
