Effects of Imperfect Unipolarity on the Ionization of Rydberg Atoms by Subpicosecond Half-Cycle PulsesPhysical Review A
AbstractRydberg atoms are ionized by nearly unipolar, subpicosecond electromagnetic pulses. Deviations from a perfectly unidirectional pulse are found to alter substantially the ionization probability as a function of peak field. Quantitative agreement between classical theory and experiment is achieved if the pulse imperfections are significantly attenuated.
