Single circularly polarized attosecond pulse generation by intense few cycle elliptically polarized laser pulses and terahertz fields from molecular media

Single circularly polarized attosecond pulse generation by intense few cycle elliptically polarized laser pulses and terahertz fields from molecular media

Physical Review Letters 110(2): 023003-023003

We present a method for producing a single circularly polarized attosecond pulse by an intense few cycle elliptically polarized laser pulse combined with a terahertz field from numerical solutions of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation for the molecular ion H2(+). It is found that in the presence of a 62.5 THz (λ=4800  nm) field at an intensity of ∼10(14)  W/cm2, a single circularly polarized 114 as pulse can be generated by an elliptical polarized laser pulse at a wavelength of 400 nm with an ellipticity of ϵ=0.59. The efficiency of circular polarization attosecond pulse generation is interpreted based on a classical model of single electron recollision with the parent ion.
