The time-dependent surface flux (t-SURFF) method for the calculation of PES [Tao and Scrinzi (2012)] allows to keep the numerical grid much smaller than the space over which the wavefunction would be spread at the end of the laser pulse. We... Title of program: Qprop Catalogue Id: ADXB_v2_0 Nature of problem When atoms are ionized by intense laser fields electrons may escape with large momenta (especially when rescattering is involved). This translates to a rapidly spreading wavefunction in numerical simulations of these systems thus rendering the calculation of PES very costly for increasing wave lengths and peak intensities.
