Double Photoelectron Momentum Spectra Of Helium At Infrared Wavelength

Double photoelectron momentum spectra of the helium atom are calculated ab initio at extreme ultraviolet and near-infrared wavelengths. At short wavelengths two-photon double-ionization yields, two-electron energy spectra, and triply differential cross sections agree with results from recent literature. At the … Continue reading
