Rb transition lines and the ionization scheme
Frequency chirped laser pulses may be successfully applied for pre-excitation of Rb atoms before further one-photon or over the barrier ionization by a strong laser pulse, or by the impact ionization. The pre-excitation of a gas of Rb atoms will drastically diminish the threshold of the ionization.
Advantages of using frequency chirped laser pulses:
i. Robustness of the atomic population transfer against variation of parameters of the laser radiation
ii. Applicability in both homogeneously and in-homogeneously broadened media, e.g. hot vapors (Doppler-broadening) or solid-state environment
ii. Ability to select a target state even in the case of broadband (e.g. ultra-short) laser pulses in the case of spectrally non-resolved manifold of atomic (molecular) energy levels.
