TL;DR: During strong-field multiphoton ionization, a wave packet is formed each time the laser field passes its maximum value, and one important parameter which determines the strength of these effects is the rate at which the wave packet spreads in the direction perpendicular to the laser electric field.

Abstract: During strong-field multiphoton ionization, a wave packet is formed each time the laser field passes its maximum value Within the first laser period after ionization there is a significant probability that the electron will return to the vicinity of the ion with very high kinetic energy High-harmonic generation, multiphoton two-electron ejection, and very high energy above-threshold-ionization electrons are all conssequences of this electron-ion interaction One important parameter which determines the strength of these effects is the rate at which the wave packet spreads in the direction perpendicular to the laser electric field; another is the polarization of the laser It will be essential for experimentalists to be aware of these crucial parameters in future experiments

Abstract: The results of calculations of photoelectric cross-sections for the Kα lines of magnesium at 1254 eV and of aluminum at 1487 eV are presented. All of the subshell cross-sections are given for Z values up to 96. The calculations were carried out relativistically using the single-potential Hartree-Slater atomic model.

Abstract: Atomic subshell photoionization cross sections and asymmetry parameters are calculated with the Hartree-Fock-Slater one-electron central potential model (dipole approximation) for all elements Z = 1–103. The cross-section results are plotted for all subshells in the energy region 0–1500 eV, and cross sections and asymmetry parameters are tabulated for selected energies in the region 10.2–8047.8 eV. In addition, more detailed graphs are given for the 4d (Z = 39–71) and 5d (Z = 64–100) subshell cross sections in the vicinity of the Cooper minimum. These data should be particularly useful for work based on spectroscopic investigations of atomic subshells using synchrotron radiation and/or discrete line sources.

Abstract: We present a complete set of analytic fits to the nonrelativistic photoionization cross sections for the ground states of atoms and ions of elements from H through Si, and S, Ar, Ca, and Fe. Near the ionization thresholds, the fits are based on the Opacity Project theoretical cross sections interpolated and smoothed over resonances. At higher energies, the fits reproduce calculated Hartree-Dirac-Slater photoionization cross sections. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Astronomical Society.}

TL;DR: A decreasing threshold fluence is found associated with a gradual transition from the long-pulse, thermally dominated regime to an ablative regime dominated by collisional and multiphoton ionization, and plasma formation.

Abstract: We report extensive laser-induced damage threshold measurements on dielectric materials at wavelengths of 1053 and 526 nm for pulse durations $\ensuremath{\tau}$ ranging from 140 fs to 1 ns. Qualitative differences in the morphology of damage and a departure from the diffusion-dominated ${\ensuremath{\tau}}^{\frac{1}{2}}$ scaling of the damage fluence indicate that damage occurs from ablation for $\ensuremath{\tau}l~10$ ps and from conventional melting, boiling, and fracture for $\ensuremath{\tau}g50$ ps. We find a decreasing threshold fluence associated with a gradual transition from the long-pulse, thermally dominated regime to an ablative regime dominated by collisional and multiphoton ionization, and plasma formation. A theoretical model based on electron production via multiphoton ionization, Joule heating, and collisional (avalanche) ionization is in quantitative agreement with the experimental results.
