Abstract

Above-threshold ionization photoelectron spectra are computed for an exactly solvable model. We predict that there will be no trapping or saturation of the bound–continuum transition and that the ionization rate is independent of the redistribution of the electron between the two continua. We find symmetric peaks about the ionization energy, and these peaks appear only during the ionization process.
