EICO measurements of inner-core excited mixed rare-gas clusters

The spectra of deep inner-core excited mixed rare-gas clusters were recorded by using electron ion coincidence (EICO) and multi-hit momentum imaging (MHMI) techniques. The EICO spectra for Ar99Kr1 clusters reveal that singly charged ions are emitted from the inner-core excited clusters in addition to the multiple charged ions. The dependence of the EICO spectra on photon energy and cluster size suggests that the holes created through vacancy cascade on the krypton atoms are transferred to the surrounding atoms, and that the singly charged ions are the primary product of the krypton photoabsorption. Charge localization is suggested for the inner-core excited mixed rare-gas clusters from the analysis of the EICO peak width. The MHMI measurements give us direct evidence for the strong charge migration from X-ray absorbing atoms to surrounding atoms. The photon energy dependence of the PSD image for fragment ions suggests that the momentum of the fragment ions depends on the number of charges generated by the vacancy cascade.
