Abstract

Strong-field-ionization yield versus intensity is investigated for various atomic targets (Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, Na, K, Zn, and Mg) and light polarization from visible to mid-infrared (0.4-4 mu m), from multiphoton to tunneling regimes. The experimental findings (normalized yield vs intensity, ratio of circular to linear polarization and saturation intensities) are compared to the theoretical models of Perelomov-Popov-Terent'ev (PPT) and Ammosov-Delone-Krainov (ADK). While PPT is generally satisfactory, ADK validity is found, as expected, to be much more limited.
