Two-color excitation of image potential states and above threshold ionization at gold nanotips — •Thomas Quenzel, Jörg Robin, Jan Vogelsang, Andreas Wöste, Petra Groß, and Christoph Lienau — Institut für Physik, Carl von Ossietzky Universität, 26129 Oldenburg
Metallic nanotapers give access to strong field phenomena at a single solid-state nanostructure [1-3]. Experiments on bulk solid-state systems have established the existence of surface states by two photon photoemission experiments . Here we use femtosecond two-color photoemission from a home-built NOPA to study the excitation and the dynamics of image potential states on a metallic nanotip.
We measure kinetic energy spectra of the photoemitted electrons as a function of delay between the (visible) pump pulse and the (near-infrared) probe pule. Atomic-like above-threshold ionization spectra are observed, which indicate the excitation of long-lived, weakly bound states at the surface of the nanostructure. With the presented work we take a step towards the emission of cold electron pulses as a promising source for ultrafast electron microscopy.
