Abstract

A Wigner-distribution-like function is proposed for analysis of the time-energy distribution of photoelectron emitted from an atom in intense laser fields. For the first time, the time-energy distribution of the photoelectron spectrum in above-threshold ionization is present. The interference pattern in the above-threshold ionization process in laser fields with different frequencies are investigated using the proposed method.

(a) Time-energy distribution of photoelectrons from H atoms irradiated by a laser pulse. The pulse duration is 60 cycles. The angular frequency ω0=0.182 a.u. and peak intensity I=1 × 1014W/cm2. The lines denote the time-varying final kinetic energy obtained from Eq. (12), corresponding to the number of extra photons absorbed S = 0 (solid line) and S = 1 (dashed line), respectively. (b) Energy spectrum obtained by integrating Eq. (10) over t.
