Abstract

For high-intensity, linearly polarized light, above-threshold ionization results from the time difference between the instant of ionization and the electric field maximum. Cold plasmas suitable for recombination extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) lasers can be produced if appropriate wavelength-ionizing radiation is used. Multiphoton ionization intensities are calculated for representative XUV laser schemes.
