Coupled-channel calculations for multiphoton ionization probabilities of helium through interaction with intensive short laser pulses are presented. Besides Slater-like orbitals we use regular Coulomb wavepackets in our configurational interaction basis to describe the continuum. Linearly polarized laser pulses of 3.8 fs duration and Wcm-2 peak intensity have been used for frequencies between 0.21.2 a.u. The results are compared with other ab initio calculations.
