Determination of Laser Induced Fields in Matter

  1. Aug 27, 2013 #1
    I wasn't sure where to post this question, so I posted it here.

    As the title suggests, I want to know how to calculate (at least roughly) the electric field induced by excitation and ionization of a material (such as a metal) using a high intensity laser. My final goal is to compare the induced fields with the laser field itself (that is, E-radiative/E-induced). Can anyone suggest any papers or books which go over such a topic?
