We show experimental and theoretical investigations of electron rescattering effects in photoemission induced by few-cycle laser pulses from metal nanotips. At nearfield-enhanced light intensities exceeding ∼ 1012 W/cm2 a pronounced plateau structure builds up in the high-energy part of the electron spectra. Similar to strong-field experiments with atomic gases, this plateau can be understood in terms of light-field governed electron motion controlled on the sub-fs timescale [1,2]. In a simplistic picture, the electron undergoes classical-particle like propagation after emission and scatters elastically at the metal surface.

A more sophisticated solid-state modelling with time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) supports this notion [3]. It enables by comparison to extract the enhanced intensity at the nanometric tip and compare it to simulations of field enhancement [4]. Most recent results will also be discussed.
