The goal of this work is to study and understand dynamics of atomic systems interacting with strong fields. To this end, a method referred to as strong-field spectroscopy is used, which measures the absorption spectrum of atoms interacting with such fields. In the scope of this work, a technique which allows the simultaneous measurement of absorption spectra of attosecond pulses and their reference signal is developed, which significantly increases the sensitivity to absorption changes. Additionally, a reconstruction method is introduced which retrieves the time-dependent evolution of the dipole response of an atomic system directly from a single absorption spectrum. Strong-field spectroscopy combines these techniques to examine the nonlinear strong-field dynamics in atomic and molecular systems and is applied to study the strongly correlated doubly excited states in helium. Furthermore, a measurement approach is introduced which uses the interaction with a high-intensity laser pulse to impose a time gate on the evolution of the coherent response of a system, which has previously been excited by an ultrashort laser pulse. With this approach the buildup of resonance phenomena in a wide range of physical systems can be studied. As a first application, the time-dependent buildup of a Fano resonance as well as the buildup of a whole Rydberg series are investigated.
