Title: Laser-driven inner-shell excitation in high-Z atoms: A shell-selective impact ionization mechanism

Abstract

A highly selective, coherent impact ionization mechanism is proposed for the efficient generation of inner-shell population inversion in laser-driven plasmas. The theoretical analysis is consistent with observed L-shell (2p{l_arrow}3d) emission spectra from laser-excited Xe clusters.
