Abstract

The combination of short wavelengths and ultrahigh intensities as provided by the new soft and hard X-ray free electron laser sources opens the doorway to totally new experiments on photon-matter interaction. It concerns, in particular, new classes of nonlinear inner-atomic processes. In the present contribution, recent results on sequential and nonsequential multi-photon ionization of gas phase targets are presented and discussed; including processes where also inner shells are affected. Moreover, examples are given how linear and nonlinear photoionization may be used for online photon diagnostics at these new radiation sources.

Keywords

Free Electron Laser Electron Bunch Photoionization Cross Section Multiphoton Ionization High Charge State 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
