- Does presence of a Laser Field affect charge transfer?
nhν + α + H He+ + p

- How much does it affect?
- Can we control charge transfer during collision through CE phase?
- Possibility for doing such an experiment

Remi did some preliminary calculations using END

1- p + H2 H + H2+

2- He+ + He He + He+

3- Li++ + He Li+ + He+

4- Li++ + Li Li+ + Li+

And Laser Field is given as

Target with ZT= 2 at origin

- Collision Energy = 1keV/amu
- Laser parameters:
- Intensity = 3.5x1012W/cm2
- FWHM ≈ 6.0fs
- λ = 800nm
- φ is CEP

! Capture is possible for almost 1-2 optical cycles

Electric Field

We are solving 3D Time Dependent Schrödinger Equation

with

&

- Operator- Splitting for Time Evolution

- Unitary operators of Cayley-Hamilton form is used for operator exponentials

- Relaxation Method to get the ground state of Hydrogen

- Our lattice solution utilizes a uniform grid and three-point finite-difference method

Box size in our calculations

[-4, 15]x x [-4, 4]yx [-25, 25]z a.u.

Grid spacing = 0.2 a.u. supports

EH = - 0.49 a.u.EHe+= - 1.90 a.u.

Time Step = 0.06 a.u.

Time Range:ti = - 200.0 a.u. to tf = 200.0 a.u.

Projectile Velocity = 0.1 a.u.

xinitial(b,0,-20.0) → xfinal(b,0,20.0)

Fig. A typical He++ + H final state density function

We estimate the reaction probability by integrating the electron density function around a box ΩT surrounding the target at tf

Where,

We define ΩT as

ΩT = [-4, 15]xx [-4, 4]y x [-25, 10]z a.u.

- The time step of 0.06 a.u. ensures energy conservation within 0.7% of its initial value
- No Soft Core by making sure our vector lies exactly between the two grid points

- 4-5 fold enhancement in capture cross section in case of both parallel and perpendicular Laser polarization
- Enhancement is CEP dependent for parallel and perpendicular Laser polarizations
- For Parallel polarization capture cross section is enhanced significantly independent of CEP
- For perpendicular polarization effect of CEP and relative angle α are related to each other.
