Many-body approach to two- and three-photon double ionization and excitation of xenon
Summary, in English
We investigate different processes which may be responsible for ejection of two electrons from the external shell of xenon through the absorption of two and three photons, namely two-photon direct double ionization and three-photon sequential double ionization via the ion in an excited state or in the ground state. We calculate the cross sections of the ionization processes involved, using many-body perturbation theory. These cross sections are then used within a rate equation model for comparing the relative efficiencies of the different double-ionization mechanisms.
