The experimental pump/probe ultrafast photoionization of the lithium species were compared with the quantum dynamical calculations on potential energy surfaces. The perturbation techniques were used to analyze the quantum dynamics of signals obtained with different laser pulse shapes, intensities and chirps. The pumps show the inadequacies of the potential surfaces and dipole moment matrix elements of lithium dimer.
