Title: Wavelength dependence of double ionization of xenon in a strong laser field

Abstract

The wavelength dependence of double ionization of xenon in a 100-fs laser pulse (2-4x10{sup 13} W/cm{sup 2}) has been studied using photoelectron imaging and ion time-of-flight spectrometry. In the wavelength ranges between 1150 and 1560 nm and 792 and 803 nm a pronounced variation of the ratio of ion yields Xe{sup 2+}/Xe{sup +} is observed. We attribute this variation to the strong influence of a 5s{sup 2}5p{sup 5}{yields}5s5p{sup 6} transition on the dynamics of double ionization.
