dc.description.abstractThis past summer, I computer modeled single and double ionization of two-electron model atoms exposed to strong laser fields. I simulated the formation of double-ionization jets that are formed when the two electrons emerge together from the region close to the nucleus, but then are pulled apart by the force of the electron-electron repulsion. I examined and compared different strengths of both the laser intensity and the laser frequency.en_US
