Ionization of helium nanodroplets was performed by the VUV-seeded FEL FERMI@Elettra. Using the unique tunability of the seed laser along with the high intensity of the FEL, it is possible to resonantly excite the nanodroplets such that almost the entire cluster is excited. In this state, neighboring excited atoms can decay via energy transfer similar to a doubly excited state decaying by autoionization. This effect leads to an enhancement in the abundance of ions. To observe the effects, one compares the power dependencies on the ion yield for various excited states to those of non-resonant ionization and direct ionization.
