The behaviour of an electron in a one-dimensional short-range potential subject to high-intensity short laser pulses was modelled numerically, by Su et al (1996 J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. 29 5755) who claimed that stabilization against ionization increases as the frequency is increased for a given intensity. Interpretation of these results as stabilization was challenged in a comment by Geltman (1999 J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. 32 853). We argue that dynamical stabilization is more easily interpreted if comparisons between different frequencies are made for the same quiver amplitudes and pulse shapes.
