Abstract

For the first time to the author’s knowledge, the effect of phase-dependent loss that can be used to stabilize the phase of a sub-10-fs laser pulse with respect to the envelope is shown. This loss is caused by the nonadiabatic response of an atom illuminated by a short pulse, which leads to the dependence of the tunneling ionization on the absolute phase of the pulse. The phase selectivity can be employed as a phase-dependent filter within the laser cavity with important applications in nonlinear optics in the single-cycle regime.
