Time delay in atomic photoionization with circularly polarized light

Ivanov, Igor; Kheifets, Anatoli


We study time delay in atomic photoionization by circularly polarized light. By considering the Li atom in an excited 2p state, we demonstrate a strong time-delay asymmetry between the photoemission of the target electrons that are co- and counter-rotating with the electromagnetic field in the polarization plane. In addition, we observe the time-delay sensitivity to the polar angle of the photoelectron emission in the polarization plane. This modulation depends on the shape and duration of the...[Show more]
