Dynamic stabilization of hydrogen in an intense, high-frequency, pulsed laser field
We present calculations of ionization rates, trapping probabilities, and electron densities for a three-dimensional hydrogen atom in an intense, high-frequency, pulsed laser field. Under certain conditions, we find that hydrogen has a significant probability of surviving the ramp of the laser field to intensities at which ionization is strongly suppressed. We examine the dynamics of this process and discuss a method to observe it experimentally. © 1991 The American Physical Society.
