LASER PULSE DURATION EFFECTS IN Xe2 + IONS INDUCED BY MULTIPHOTON ABSORPTION AT 0. 53 mu m.
Summary, in English
Xe**2** plus ions can easily be formed by multiphoton absorption in Xe atoms at 0. 53 mu m. A kinetic model is developed which is based on the rate equations describing the evolution of populations of Xe atoms, Xe** plus and Xe**2** plus ions. The result is that the ratio of the number of Xe**2** plus to Xe** plus ions varies with the pulse duration tau as tau ** minus **3**/**2.
