Description:

We study photoemission, the process where electromagnetic radiation interacts with matter and leads to the emission of electrons. This process takes place on an incredibly short time scale, but with the aid of advanced laser technology we can study its dynamics and the quantum mechanical rules that govern it. Here, we study the photoionization of helium with a 3D momentum spectrometer.

A short train of pulses in the extreme ultraviolet spectral regime and with an attosecond time duration were focused together with a few-cycle near infrared laser pulse into a helium gas jet in a spectrometer. The spectrometer measures both the resulting photoions and photoelectrons after the ionization by the combined extreme ultraviolet and infrared light, and the complete three-dimensional momentum distribution can be reconstructed.

In this study the photoelectron distribution was studied while varying the carrier-to-envelope phase (CEP) of the infrared field. The CEP is the phase relation between the envelope of a light pulse and its carrier wave, and for few cycle pulses it significantly alters the shap

Description:

Data has been aquried with a 3D momentum spectrometer, recording position and time-of-flight of photo-electrons and photo-ions in coincidence. For more information about the operation of the spectrometer and methods for retriving momenta see:
