Abstract  We systematically investigate the influence of atomic potentials on the above-threshold ionization (ATI) spectra in one-dimensional (1D) cases and compare them with the three-dimensional (3D) case by numerically solving the time-dependent Schrödinger equation. It is found that the direct ionization plateau and the rescattering plateau of the ATI spectrum in the 3D case can be well reproduced by the 1D ATI spectra calculated from the supersolid-core potential and the soft-core potential, respectively. By analyzing the factors that affect the yield of the ATI spectrum, we propose a modified-potential with which we can reproduce the overall 3D ATI spectrum. In addition, the influence of the incident laser intensities and frequencies on the ATI spectra calculated from the proposed modified potential is studied.
