The advent of intense lasers with long wavelengths (on the order of microns) is allowing to have access to a novel control of molecules. We focus on the coherent control of vibrational states of the hydrogen molecular ion in the multiphoton processes regime. Moreover, such intense laser can generate high-harmonics; attosecond pulses (10^-18 s) with high-frequency, a suitable time scale to explore the electron and nuclear dynamics in molecules. Here, by using a double-slit-like set-up in the atomic scale, we show the dynamics retrieval of the nuclear wavepacket of the hydrogen molecular ion.
