Bloch equations and kinetic equations in multiphoton ionization

Israel Schek, Joshua Jortner

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we investigate the effect of laser phase fluctuations on the ionization dynamics of a two-level system. The conditions for validity of the kinetic master equation for the description of a resonant two-photon ionization process of an isolated molecule were established on the basis of analytical results and numerical simulations.
