Two-Step Double Photoionization of Molecules

Part of the Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics book series (SSAOPP, volume 67)


 Chapter 6 and Sect. 7.3 (on pages 169–178) contain discussions of the Coulombic and fine-structure entanglement, respectively, of a bipartite state of electronic qubits emitted sequentially from an atom in the two-step process (1.3). Such processes were therein called as 2-DPI. Sequential emission of two electrons can equally well take place also from a molecule—both linear and non-linear.
