Abstract

We have studied the ionization of Rydberg atoms by few-cycle radio-frequency pulses and used two-color fields to control the ionization dynamics. We show that the number of times that electrons are emitted during a pulse can be limited and that the duration of the electron emission can be shortened. These results, once they are transposed to the optical domain, may inspire new strategies for the production of single attosecond pulses.
