Tunneling Time in Ultrafast Science is Real and Probabilistic

Not Accessible

We present approach and results of an angular streaking experiment with the attoclock method [1] that suggest the existence of a real tunneling time in strong field ionization of Helium. The results are compared with competing theories of tunneling time and show that the only theories that are compatible with the experimental results are the Larmor time and a distribution of tunneling times with a long tail constructed using a Feynman Path Integral formulation. We find that the latter matches the experimental data the best. Our results have strong implications on investigations of the electron dynamics in attosecond science since a significant uncertainty must be taken into account about when the electron hole dynamics begins to evolve.
