We calculate various differential and double differential characteristics of ionization by a single photon for H−, He and for the two-electron ions with Z = 3, 4, 5 in the region of the so-called quasi-free mechanism (QFM) domination. We employ highly accurate wave functions at the electron-electron coalescence line where coordinates of both ionized electrons coincide. We trace the Z dependence of the double differential distributions. For all considered targets we discuss the dependence of the…

Quasifree Photoionization under the Reaction Microscope

We experimentally investigated the quasifree mechanism (QFM) in one-photon double ionization of He and H2 at 800 eV photon energy and circular polarization with a COLTRIMS reaction microscope. Our

Accurate exponential representations for the ground states of the collinear two-electron atomic systems

Effects of Spin Orbit Interaction (SOI) on the Thermodynamic Properties of a Quantum Pseudodot

We investigate the effect of spin orbit interaction (SOI) on thermodynamics quantities of a quantum pseudodot. The energy levels have been derived and thermal properties are evaluated using the

Accurate Exponential Representations for the Ground State Wave Functions of the Collinear Two-Electron Atomic Systems

In the framework of the study of helium-like atomic systems possessing the collinear configuration, we propose a simple method for computing compact but very accurate wave functions describing the



Photon Momentum Transfer in Single-Photon Double Ionization of Helium.

It is found that the forward shifts of the momenta along the light propagation of the two photoelectrons are roughly proportional to their fraction of the excess energy, which holds for fast and slow electrons despite the fact that the energy sharing is highly asymmetric.

Two-electron photoionization of helium

Cross sections of such processes as double photoionization and photoionization accompanied by excitation of He-like atomic systems are investigated in the limit of high, but still not relativistic,

Ejection of quasi-free-electron pairs from the helium-atom ground state by single-photon absorption.

We investigate the single-photon double ionization of helium at photon energies of 440 and 800 eV. We observe doubly charged ions with close to zero momentum corresponding to electrons emitted back

Nuclear charge dependence of the two-electron high-frequency photoionization cross section

Using high-precision wave functions describing the ground and excited states of the H 2 ion, He atom, and heliumlike ions, the cross sections of single- and double-electron photoionization are

Double photoionization of helium including quadrupole radiation effects

Non-perturbative time-dependent close-coupling calculations are carried out for the double photoionization of helium including both dipole and quadrupole radiation effects. At a photon energy of 800

Implementation of the external complex scaling method in spheroidal coordinates: Impact ionization of molecular hydrogen

We develop an ab initio procedure based on the driven Schroedinger equation formalism and the external complex scaling method for the determination of the multifold differential cross sections of the

Effects of photon momentum in nonrelativistic (γ,2e) processes

We study the effects of nonzero photon momentum on the triply differential cross section (TDCS) for (γ,2e) processes. Due to the low value of the photon momentum, these effects are weak and manifest

The limit relations for the partial derivatives of the two-electron atomic wave functions at the two-particle coalescence lines have been obtained numerically using accurate correlation function

The relativistic double photoeffect

The double photoionization of the atomic K shell ( alpha Z<<1) by high-energy photons is considered. The interaction between the electrons is included in the lowest order of the perturbation theory.
