Probing and controlling electrons and nuclei in matter at the attosecond timescale became possible with the generation of attosecond pulses by few-cycle intense lasers, and has revolutionized our understanding of atomic structure and molecular processes. This book provides an intuitive approach to this emerging field, utilizing simplified models to develop a clear understanding of how matter interacts with attosecond pulses of light. An introductory chapter outlines the structure of atoms and molecules and the properties of a focused laser beam. Detailed discussion of the fundamental theory of attosecond and strong-field physics follows, including the molecular tunnelling ionization model (MO-ADK theory), the quantitative rescattering (QRS) model, and the laser induced electronic diffraction (LIED) theory for probing the change of atomic configurations in a molecule. Highlighting the cutting-edge developments in attosecond and strong field physics, and identifying future opportunities and challenges, this self-contained text is invaluable for students and researchers in the field.

'This is the book we were waiting for...Definitely a must-have!' Jens Biegert, The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO)

'... a very accessible introduction to the emerging fields of attosecond science and strong field laser physics ... This book will be a valuable resource for both new students and experienced researchers in the field.' Mark Vrakking, Max Born Institute, Berlin

'The first reference in the attosecond and strong field community.' Katsumi Midorikawa, Director, RIKEN Center for Advanced Photonics

'This is a textbook dedicated to graduate students who wish to understand strong laser fields and attosecond physics. The book is very clearly written and beautifully illustrated, the majority of figures being in color. Exercises and references are found at the end of all chapters ... Since attosecond pulses are a booming area of research, with many applications, this book is a must for university libraries and can be read easily by students and experts in the field. Daniela Dragoman, Optics & Photonics News
