Paper Abstract

The potential of using interferences between transition amplitudes for the coherent control of photoionization rates and of asymmetric photoelectron angular distributions has been demonstrated previously. Current efforts in our laboratories are directed toward control of photoionization of NO, and on control of photoionization channels in atomic barium. This latter system is, of course, much simpler than a molecular system, and thus may provide better insight into the mechanisms involved. We will discuss our investigations of the effects of nonlinear coupling, absorption, and dispersion of the laser beams on their propagation through dense media, as observed via interference effects. Laser band structure effects and the effect of Doppler broadening will also be discussed.
