  • The dynamic stabilization of atomic hydrogen against ionization in high-frequency single- and two-color, circularly polarized laser pulses is observed by numerically solving the three-dimensional, time-dependent Schroedinger equation. The single-color case is revisited and numerically determined ionization rates are compared with both, the exact and the approximate high-frequency Floquet rates. The positions of the peaks in the photoelectron spectra can be explained with the help of dressed initial states. In two-color laser fields of opposite circular polarization, the stabilized probability density may be shaped in various ways. For laser frequencies {omega}{sub 1} and {omega}{sub 2}=n{omega}{sub 1}, n=2,3,..., and sufficiently large excursionmore » amplitudes (n+1) distinct probability density peaks are observed. This may be viewed as the generalization of the well-known 'dichotomy' in linearly polarized laser fields, i.e, as 'trichotomy', 'quatrochotomy', 'pentachotomy' etc. All those observed structures and their 'hula-hoop'-like dynamics can be understood with the help of high-frequency Floquet theory and the two-color Kramers-Henneberger transformation. The shaping of the probability density in the stabilization regime can be realized without additional loss in the survival probability, as compared to the corresponding single-color results.« less
  • Ethanol molecules were irradiated with a pair of temporally overlapping ultrashort intense laser pulses (10{sup 13}-10{sup 14} W/cm{sup 2}) with different colors of 400 and 800 nm, and the dissociative ionization processes have been investigated. The yield ratio of the C-O bond breaking with respect to the C-C bond breaking was varied in the range of 0.17-0.53 sensitively depending on the delay time between the two laser pulses, and the absolute value of the yield of the C-O bond breaking was found to be increased largely when the Fourier-transform limited 800 nm laser pulse overlaps the stretched 400 nm lasermore » pulse, demonstrating an advantage of the two-color intense laser fields in controlling chemical bond breaking processes.« less
