Multiphoton ionization versus dissociation of diatomic molecules irradiated by an intense 40 ps laser pulse
Summary, in English
The production of molecular and atomic ions has been measured for CO, N2 and O2 with 1064 and 532 nm 40 ps pulses in the 1012-1014 W cm-2 intensity range. A simultaneous ionization-dissociation process occurs at lower intensities, while a sequential process appears in oxygen at higher intensities.
