Multiphoton electron angular distributions from laser-aligned CS2 molecules.


Laser-aligned carbondisulfide (CS2) molecules are singly ionized by multiphoton absorption from intense, linearly polarized 25 fs laser pulses. The angular distribution of the photoelectrons exhibits a significant dependence on the angle between the polarizations of the aligning and ionizing laser fields. The widely used strong-field approximation predicts angular distributions in qualitative agreement with the experimental data but fails at a quantitative level.
