We study the Mott scattering of charged spinless particles in the presence of an intense plane wave laser pulse with fixed propagation direction and arbitrary duration and shape. We derive two equivalent forms of the transition amplitude and we discuss the relation between the respective results obtained in the case of a laser pulse and the monochromatic case. We obtain the condition defining the boundaries of the “bright” domain (the domain of allowed values in the energy-direction space of the scattered particle) and we illustrate our results with numerical examples.
