The calculated asymmetry parameters β2 and β4 for second-step photoelectrons in selected transitions of sequential 2PDI
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
Figure 2. The calculated asymmetry parameters β2 and β4 for second-step photoelectrons in selected transitions of sequential 2PDI. Solid (black) lines: 2P3/2 → 3P2; long-dashed (red) lines 2P3/2 → 3P0; short-dashed (blue) line: 2P3/2 → 3P1; dot-dashed (green) line: 2P1/2 → 3P2; double-dot-dashed line (magenta): 2P1/2 → 3P0; dotted line (violet): 2P1/2 → 3P1. The β4 parameter is shown for two transitions only: 2P3/2 → 3P2, solid (black) line and 2P3/2 → 3P0, long-dashed (red) line. For other transitions, β4 = 0 (see the text).
Xenon atoms are double-ionized by sequential two-photon absorption by ultrashort extreme ultraviolet free-electron laser pulses with a photon energy of 23.0 and 24.3 eV, produced by the SPring-8 Compact SASE Source test accelerator. The angular distributions of photoelectrons generated by two-photon double ionization are obtained using velocity map imaging. The results are reproduced reasonably well by the present theoretical calculations within the multi-configurational Dirac–Fock approach.
