Abstract: We present numerical simulations of femtosecond laser induced dynamics of some selected simple molecules -- hydrogen, singly ionized sodium dimer, singly ionized helium trimer and lithium cyanide. The simulations were performed within a real-space, real-time, implementation of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT). High harmonic generation, Coulomb explosion and laser induced photo-dissociation are observed. The scheme also describes non-adiabatic effects, such as the appearance of even harmonics for homopolar but isotopically asymmetric dimers, even if the ions are treated classically. This TDDFT-based method is reliable, scalable, and extensible to other phenomena such as photoisomerization, molecular transport and chemical reactivity.
