Quantum-mechanical and quasiclassical scattering of molecules in a nonperturbative laser field are studied. Analytical expressions for the observables of interest in laser-induced focusing and guiding of molecules are derived that span the quantal-to-classical energy regime and the weak-to-strong interaction range. General conclusions regarding the problem of two-dimensional quantum-mechanical scattering are drawn.
