Collective Autoionization in Multiply-Excited Systems: A novel ionization process observed in Helium Nanodroplets

Abstract

Free electron lasers (FELs) offer the unprecedented capability to study reaction dynamics and image the structure of complex systems. When multiple photons are absorbed in complex systems, a plasma-like state is formed where many atoms are ionized on a femtosecond timescale. If multiphoton absorption is resonantly-enhanced, the system becomes electronically… (More)
