Abstract

Experimental information on laser-induced multiple ionization is analyzed in terms of a model that includes the scaling of the generalized cross sections and the time dependence during the pulse. A comparison of direct with sequential processes reveals the dominance of the latter. The role of multiply excited states in strong-laser studies is also discussed.
