Parallelizable Algorithms For Describing The Effects Of Strong Time-Dependent Electromagnetic Fields On The Hydrogen Atom
MetadataShow full item record
We are testing a variety of methods to numerically treat the ionization of atomic hydrogen by a strong lase r pulse. Besides providing high accuracy, the algorithms should be parallelizable in order to handle the sometimes long propagation times needed to solve the time-dependent Schrödinger equation for this fundamental strong-field problem. We report progress on developing a computer code that will make such calculations possible on massively parallel supercomputer platforms.
