Title

Investigating Two-Photon Double Ionization of D2 by XUV-Pump / XUV-Probe Experiments at FLASH

Abstract

Using a novel split-mirror set-up attached to a Reaction Microscope at the Free electron LASer in Hamburg (FLASH) we demonstrate an XUV-pump - XUV-probe (ħω - 38 eV) experiment by tracing the ultra-fast nuclear wave-packet motion in the D2+(1sσg-state) with < 10fs time resolution. Comparison with time-dependent calculations yields excellent agreement with the measured vibrational period of 22±4 fs in D2+, points to the importance of the inter-nuclear distance dependent ionization probability and paves the way to control sequential and non-sequential two-photon double ionization contributions.
