Molecules/clusters have been shown to undergo an enhancement in ionization under ultrafast laser pulses. This enhancement results in the lowering of the laser intensity required to observe ion signal from higher atomic charge states resulting from Coulomb explosion of clusters. Here, we explore the effect of using an early-group transition metal as an… CONTINUE READING
