Using attosecond pulses to do novel strong field physics

Kenneth J. Schafer,

Attosecond pulses are among the most celebrated artifacts of strong field physics. They are also, we will argue, one of the most versatile tools available for studying and controlling these same strong field processes. In this talk I will review recent theoretical and experimental (!) progress in attosecond pulse control over processes such as harmonic generation and above threshold ionization, and new results on attosecond electron wave packet interferometry.
