Coherent control of attosecond emission from aligned molecules

Abstract : Controlling attosecond electron wavepackets and soft x-ray pulses represents a formidable challenge of general implication to many areas of science 1-4. A strong laser field interacting with atoms or molecules drives ultrafast intra-atomic/molecular electron wavepackets on a subfemtosecond timescale, resulting in the emission of attosecond bursts of extreme ultraviolet (XUV) light 5,6. Controlling the intra-atomic/molecular electron dynamics allows steering the attosecond emission 7,8. Here we perform a coherent control in linear molecules, where the interaction of the laser-driven
