ABSTRACT 

In this seminar, I will present our theoretical and model experimental work on atomic excitation by strong fields with Rabi frequency of the order of the transition frequency. We performed our model experiment in the radio-frequency domain where we have precise control over all the parameters. Fundamental physics like selection rules, breaking adiabaticity, multi-photon transition will be discussed along with carrier-envelope phases effects by few and multi-cycle pulses.
