Abstract:

A theory is presented to describe multiphoton detachment of negative ions by intense laser beams. The detachment rate is expressed in terms of the single-photon detachment rate. Numerical results are presented for detachment of electrons from O- and O2-. Critical comments are given concerning some theories of multiphoton ionization.
