Abstract

Based on realistic numerical simulations of atomic hydrogen interacting with high-frequency ultraintense laser pulses, we show an optimized laser scheme for an experiment on atomic stabilization. A single traveling wave does not constitute an appropriate experimental arrangement, provided that the magnetic drift (the radiation pressure) plays a fundamental role in governing the dynamics of the wave packet in this range of laser parameters. There is, however, a possible experiment where this undesired effect of the magnetic field can be eliminated: our proposal is that the incoming field has to be split into two counterpropagating fields with certain polarization conditions.
