AbstractWe show how a carefully chosen combination of strong linearly and circularly polarized laser fields can bind two same-sign charges, not only suppressing their Coulomb repulsion in all three spatial dimensions, but also creating an effective attraction. As an example, we show how a molecule HD2+ stripped of both electrons can be kept bound by the laser fields.
