Dynamics of Particle in Confined-Harmonic Potential in External Static Electric Field and Strong Laser Field


Dynamics of a particle in confined-harmonic potential, subjected to external static electric and time-dependent laser fields is studied. The energy levels and wave functions of unperturbed harmonic oscillator are evaluated using B-polynomial Galerkin method. Matrix formulation is used throughout the procedure. This procedure is very simple and efficient in comparison with other methods. Modifications of wave functions and energy levels due to static electric field are also calculated. Finally, absorption spectra of such a driven oscillator are studied and explained.
