Paper Abstract

We study the mechanisms of ultrafast free-electron generation in laser-irradiated dielectrics. The transient free-electron density in laser-irradiated dielectrics is calculated with a widely applicable new model, the multiple rate equation. The system of simple rate equations keeps track of the nonstationary electron energy distribution. We clarify the role of different ionization processes in dependence on laser pulse duration and intensity.
