Generations of even-order harmonics from vibrating H2+ and T2+ in the rising and falling parts of the laser field
The generations of the even-order harmonics from H2+ and one of its isotope T2+ have been theoretically investigated beyond the Born-Oppenheimer approximation. Normally, the high-order harmonic generation (HHG) only contains odd-order harmonics for the orbital symmetry along the direction of laser polarization. Here, we showed that due to asymmetric harmonic emission (asymmetric half-wave profile), the even-order harmonics can be generated in the rising and the falling part of the laser field. In detail, in the lower initial vibrational state, the even-order harmonics main come from the falling part of the laser field; while as the initial vibrational state increases, the identified even-order harmonics in the falling part of the laser field are decreased; while some other even-order harmonics coming from the rising part of the laser field can be produced. The interesting phenomena have been proved through studying the spatial distributions and the time profiles of the HHG.
