Abstract

A new, direct vacuum-ultraviolet laser-excitation method is used to study the single-photon autoionization of xenon atoms in the 5p65p5 ns[1/2]10 (14n52) and 5p65p5 nd[3/2]10 (16n78) autoionizing Rydberg series. Fano profile parameters for both series are reported over the entire range of observed states. From analysis of the nd series an ionization potential Td=108 370.82±0.05 cm-1 is obtained. This agrees well with a previously reported limit of 108 370.8±0.2 cm-1.
