Application of Atomic Pseudopotentials in Intense Laser-Material Interactions
Prof. Xiao-Min Tong
Center for Computational Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Japan

In this talk, I will present our recent work on the applicability of norm-conserving pseudopotentials to intense laser-matter interactions by performing time-dependent density functional theory simulations with an all-electron potential and with norm-conserving pseudopotentials. We find pseudopotentials to be reliable for the simulation of above-threshold ionization over a broad range of laser intensities both for the total ionization probability and the photoelectron energy spectrum. For the simulation of high-order harmonic generation pseudopotentials are shown to be applicable for lower-order harmonics in the spectral range in which the one-photon recombination dipole-matrix element can be recovered by the pseudopotential calculation. With this justification, we are developing a new TDDFT code by using FFT, which can be applied to a large isolate system with 3D grid size of 108. The preliminary results of molecules in an intense laser field by the new method will also be discussed.
