Abstract:

A semiclassical model treating the interaction of an intense laser field with a non-radiatively coupled system is developed. The model is applied to laser-electron-nuclear energy transfer in a simple single particle model. Results from an initial series of runs on an illustrative example, as reported in conferences and the open literature, are summarized. The work is of ultimate interest in excitation of low-energy nuclear transitions for isotope separation, examination of a laser triggered isotropic gamma-source, or, with extensions, laser damage studies.
