Abstract:

A new device for charged particle coincidence experiments in strong-field, short pulse laser-atom/molecule interactions is presented. The device consists of a single time of flight spectrometer, common for both positive and negative charge detection. Experimental parameters required for the use of the device in the high intensity regime are discussed. A demonstration of electron-ion coincidence measurements in the interaction of Xe atoms with 60 fs laser pulses at 800 nm and an intensity of \(\)W/cm2 is reported.
