Abstract

A simple model of autoionization in a fluctuating electric field is proposed and solved for the ionization rate. The fluctuating electric field can be a microfield in a plasma. Both dilute and dense plasmas are considered. Explicit expressions for broadening the Fano profile are derived and discussed in both cases, and particularly simple results are obtained in the impact limit.
