Abstract

Understanding multiphoton ionization of atoms or molecules is of fundamental importance in atomic and molecular physics, However, it is rarely noted that it is equally important for plasma physics. Laboratory plasmas are normally ionized and heated by electron collisions. Plasmas produced by photons will have very different characteristics.
