Title: Photodetachment of H{sup -} in a static electric field near an elastic wall

Abstract

The photodetachment cross section of H{sup -} in a static electric field near an elastic wall is investigated based on both a quantum approach and the semiclassical closed-orbit theory. It is found that the distance between the ion and wall is another factor to modulate the cross section of the photodetachment. For an elastic wall perpendicular to the electric field, the detachment spectrum displays an irregular staircase structure, contrasting with the smooth oscillation when only the electric field exists.
