Abstract  We use the strong field approximation with a time window function controlling the release time of electrons to study the intra-cycle and inter-cycle interferences in few-cycle intense laser pulses impinging on He. The diffraction fringes, i.e., the vertical stripe-like structure, observed in the experimental two-dimensional photoelectron momentum distributions of Gopal et al. (2009 Phys. Rev. Lett. 103 053001) have been attributed to the interplay of the intra-and inter-cycle interferences. The pure numerical calculations by solving the time-dependent Schrödinger equation are also performed and the results are compared with the experimental measurements directly. It has been found that the position of the stripe-like structure can be used to determine the duration of the laser pulses used in experiments.
