Accurate and efficient grid based techniques for the solution of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation for few-electron diatomic molecules irradiated by intense, ultrashort laser pulses are described. These are based on hybrid finite-difference, Lagrange mesh techniques. The methods are applied in three scenarios, namely H with fixed internuclear separation, H with vibrating nuclei and H2 with fixed internuclear separation and illustrative results presented.
