Paper Abstract

We study rare gas cluster explosion in an intense, femtosecond laser pulse using Monte Carlo particle dynamics simulations. The obtained dependence of ion energy on ion charge is approximately quadratic for lower charge states and linear for higher ones. This behavior, also observed in experiments, can be entirely explained on the basis of the Coulomb explosion mechanism. Our results also show that electron impact ionization plays only a minor role in ionization.
