Paper Abstract

Four- and five-photon ionization of krypton has been investigated in the autoionizing region between the P1/2 and P3/2 ionization limits with a high-powered pulsed tunable dye laser and a static ionization cell. For the four-photon case, the np' and nf' Rydberg series leading to the P1/2 limit were observed for n values 10-14 (p') and 7-18 (f'). The measured term values are compared with available earlier results. Quantum defects and ionization limits have been obtained. No new atomic structure was observed in the five-photon scans in krypton or in limited three-photon scans in xenon.
