In the past few years, considerable progress has been made in the attosecond imaging of matter and in the understanding of how complex systems interact with strong laser pulses. Concrete examples are the reconstruction of molecular orbitals , coherent control of molecular wavepackets , the probing of molecular vibration , or the investigation of high-order harmonic generation and ionization in clusters  and larger molecules .
There exists, however, a great deal of controversy, especially with respect to an accurate treatment of the targets in intense fields. This discussion goes beyond the current scope of strong-field laser physics and moves towards the fields of quantum chemistry and condensed-matter theory.
