Title: Ion and electron emission from silver nanoparticles in intense laser fields

Abstract

By a comparative analysis of the emission of highly charged ions and energetic electrons the interaction dynamics of intense femtosecond laser fields (10{sup 13}-10{sup 14} W/cm{sup 2}) with nanometer-sized silver clusters is investigated. Using dual laser pulses with variable optical delay the time-dependent cluster response is resolved. A dramatic increase both in the atomic charge state of the ions and the maximum electron kinetic energy is observed for a certain delay of the pulses. Corresponding Vlasov calculations on a metal cluster model system indicate that enhanced cluster ionization as well as the generation of fast electrons coincide with resonant plasmon excitation.
