The fundamental interaction of an intense electromagnetic field with an
atom had filled the imagination of scientist since the early days of
quantum mechanics. Stimulated by the invention of the laser in 1960, the
last few decades has seen extraordinary advances in femtosecond
amplifier technology, turning dreams into reality. In this talk, we will
discussed the foundations of intense laser-atom interactions using a
classical description and its impact of opening the world of attosecond
science. Now the scientist has a new dream, the creation of the
molecular movie in which all the constituents of matter can be watched
in real time.
