Timedependent densityfunctionaltheory calculation of strongfield ionization rates of H{sub 2}
We report a numerical study of strongfield ionization rates of the H{sub 2} molecule using timedependent densityfunctional theory (TDDFT). In the dc field limit, TDDFT results for the rate of tunneling ionization agree with molecular AmmosovDeloneKralnov (MOADK) predictions, as well as results from a complex scaling method at the full configuration interaction level. Our study demonstrates the effect of photon energy, molecular vibration, and orientation on the ionization. Calculated rates for 800nm lasers are about four times greater than the values predicted by the slowly varying field approximation for tunneling ionization. The rate for the ground vibrational state is highermore » 
Comparison of the strongfield ionization of N{sub 2} and F{sub 2}: A timedependent densityfunctionaltheory study
We compare strongfield ionization probabilities of N{sub 2} and F{sub 2} molecules using timedependent density functional theory calculations. Accurate nuclear potentials and ground vibrational wave functions are incorporated into our study. For both molecules, the effect of molecular vibration is small, while that of the molecular orientation is significant. When compared to the ionization probability of a molecule at the equilibrium geometry, we estimate the effect of the ground state vibration to be within 3% for N{sub 2} and within 6% for F{sub 2} in the intensity range from 1 to 5x10{sup 14} W/cm{sup 2}. The molecularorientationdependent ionization probabilities formore » 
Momentum distributions in timedependent densityfunctional theory: Productphase approximation for nonsequential double ionization in strong laser fields
We investigate the possibility to deduce momentum space properties from timedependent density functional calculations. Electron and ion momentum distributions after double ionization of a model helium atom in a strong fewcycle laser pulse are studied. We show that, in this case, the choice of suitable functionals for the observables is considerably more important than the choice of the correlation potential in the timedependent KohnSham equations. By comparison with the solution of the timedependent Schroedinger equation, the insufficiency of functionals neglecting electron correlation is demonstrated. We construct a functional of the KohnSham orbitals, which in principle yields the exact momentum distributionsmore » 
Effects of multiple electronic shells on strongfield multiphoton ionization and highorder harmonic generation of diatomic molecules with arbitrary orientation: An allelectron timedependent densityfunctional approach
We present a timedependent densityfunctional theory approach with proper longrange potential for an ab initio study of the effect of correlated multielectron responses on the multiphoton ionization (MPI) and highorder harmonic generation (HHG) of diatomic molecules N{sub 2} and F{sub 2} in intense short laser pulse fields with arbitrary molecular orientation. We show that the contributions of inner molecular orbitals to the total MPI probability can be sufficiently large or even dominant over the highestoccupied molecular orbital, depending on detailed electronic structure and symmetry, laser field intensity, and orientation angle. The multielectron effects in HHG are also very important. Theymore »
