Abstract

Multiphoton detachment of F- by strong few-cycle laser pulses was studied by Shearer and Monteith using a Keldysh-type approach [Phys. Rev. A 88, 033415 (2013)]. We believe that this work contained errors in the calculation of the detachment amplitude and photoelectron spectra. We describe the necessary corrections to the theory and show that the results, in particular, the interference features of the photoelectron spectra, appear noticeably different. Corrected results are also in better agreement with the detachment probabilities determined by the R-matrix with time dependence method [Hassouneh et al., Phys. Rev. A 91, 031404(R) (2015)].
