The total charge of the emitted ions from the planar metal targets irradiated by the mode-locked ruby laser was measured. The dependence of the total emitted ions on the laser fluence is consistent with the theory of the multiphoton ionization in the low fluence region. However, it shows saturation phenomena at the higher fluence regions. These saturations could be explained by the depletion of the neutral atoms and the level shifting of the intermediate state due to the strong Stark effect.

    The influence of the Stark effect on multiphoton ionization of Ba atoms under conditions when the dynamic polarizability depends strongly on the frequency of the laser radiation is investigated. It is found that for some electric field strengths e of the laser radiation this effect gives rise to...

    Herein, we report on femtosecond time-resolved experiments in ammonia clusters. The mechanisms of their ionization and the subsequent formation of the protonated ammonia cluster ions are studied using a femtosecond pump-probe technique at 620 nm. It is found that an intermediate corresponding to...

    In this paper we formulate a theory for the analysis of resonant enhanced multiphoton ionization processes in molecules. Our approach consists of viewing the (n+m) photon ionization process from an isotropic initial state as m-photon ionization out of an oriented, excited state. The orientation...
