The coincident detection of particles is a powerful method in experimental physics, enabling the investigation of a variety of projectile-target interactions. The vast majority of coincidence experiments is performed with charged particles, as they can be guided by electric or magnetic fields to yield large detection probabilities. When a neutral species or a photon is one of the particles recorded in coincidence, its detection probability typically suffers from small solid angles. Here, we…

Photon-electron coincidence experiments at synchrotron radiation facilities with arbitrary bunch modes.

The adaptation of an electron-photon coincidence detection scheme to the multibunch hybrid mode of the synchrotron radiation source BESSY II (Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin) is reported, expecting this method to be a useful tool to extend the versatility of coincident particle detection to arbitrary operation modes ofsynchrotrons radiation facilities and other excitation sources without the need for additional experimental adjustments.

Electronic Decay of Singly Charged Ground-State Ions by Charge Transfer via van der Waals Bonds.

The observation of the radiative decay of singly charged noble gas ground-state ions embedded in heterogeneous van der Waals clusters is reported, indicating a fundamental decay process of ionized systems in an environment.

Interatomic and Intermolecular Coulombic Decay

A new approach to the complete photoionization experiment, by means of a coincidence measurement between autoionized electrons and polarized fluorescent photons, in the region of the 3p-3d resonance in calcium

By using synchrotron radiation to excite calcium atoms in the 3p-3d resonance region, excited calcium ions are generated. In the first measurement of this kind, we have measured the polarization of
