The momentum vector distributions of fragment ions produced through the Coulomb explosion of small molecules such as NO, CO[sub 2], NO[sub 2], and H[sub 2]O in intense laser fields (∼1 PW/cm2) are measured by the mass-resolved momentum imaging (MRMI) technique...

    Recently, light-induced domain reversal has been developed to a promising method for domain engineering, but the depth of reversed domain is only of several tens of microns, which greatly limits its practical applications. In this Letter, we fabricated domain patterns on the -z face of 1.0 mol %...
