An exact formulation for ultrafast electron emission due to a dc bias and a laser field

Abstract

This paper presents an analytical theory of electron emission from a metal surface subjected to an arbitrary combination of a dc electric field and a laser electric field. We solve the time-dependent Schrödinger equation exactly, and show that short electron bunches may be produced by a relatively weak laser field with a strong dc bias field. Our… (More)
