Figure 1: Simplified illustration of the CEP dependent photofragmentation mechanism. (Left) For the CEP value of the driving pulse in the lower left, the kinetic energy of the recolliding electron is high enough to promote the molecule to a dissociative state, leading to photofragmentation. (Right) For this CEP value of the driving pulse, the kinetic energy of the recolliding electron is lower and the molecule is promoted to a bound state, from which photodissociation cannot take place.
