Angle-dependent time delay in two-color XUV+IR photoemission of He and Ne
AbstractWe solve the time-dependent Schrödinger equation for a noble gas atom (He and Ne) driven by an ionizing XUV and dressing IR fields. From this solution we deduce an angular dependence of the photoemission time delay as measured by the RABBITT (reconstruction of attosecond beating by interference of two-photon transitions) technique. We use a recent angle-resolved RABBITT measurement on helium [S. Heuser et al., Phys. Rev. A 94, 063409 (2016)2469-992610.1103/PhysRevA.94.063409] to test and calibrate our theoretical model. Based on this calibration, we find no significant difference between the time delay in He measured in the angle-integrated RABBITT experiments [C. Palatchi et al., J. Phys. B 47, 245003 (2014)JPAPEH0953-407510.1088/0953-4075/47/24/245003 and D. Guénot , J. Phys. B 47, 245602 (2014)JPAPEH0953-407510.1088/0953-4075/47/24/245602] and measured or calculated in the polarization axis direction. The angular dependence of the photoemission time delay of Ne is shown to be qualitatively different from He because of the different orbital character of the valence 2p orbital. The angular momentum projection dependence of the time delay in Ne is also investigated.
