Angular distribution of atomic photoelectrons (PAD) is well understood concerning single-photon ionization and above threshold ionization. However, for the ionisation of an atom using two or three photon processes, theory predicts differing PADs. 
We present an experimental setup for the investigation of PADs which are dominated by the initial state of the atom and by rescattering effects with the parent ions only. This is done by using a high pulse energy laser source centered at a wavelength of 265 nm. With the help of a velocity map imaging spectrometer we expect to detect highly structured PADs from few-photon ionized Helium atoms and therefore validate the theoretical predictions.
