Abstract:

The research team obtained uniquely reliable reference data on atomic interactions with intense few-cycle laser pulses. From this reference data, the team derived accurate calibration standards for laser intensity and phase that are free of systematic errors. These standards can be utilized by other laboratories. These findings are significant as progress in strong-field attosecond physics is currently hampered by the difficulty of obtaining quantitatively accurate and reproducible experimental data. This project provides such data, enabling baseline comparisons across different laboratories. The data can also test theoretical models that are widely used even though their accuracy is poorly characterized. New research questions which came about from this project How can we transfer calibration standards efficiently to a wider range of laboratories How can we directly calibrate the stereo-ATI technique for measurement of laser phase
