AbstractUsing sequential strong-field double ionization in a pump–probe scheme we show through calculations how electronic dynamics can be prepared and imaged. Electronic dynamics may arise whenever multiple states of the ion are accessed in the ionization step. The dynamics in the cation influence the rate of the second ionization step and the momentum distribution of the ejected electron, allowing their detailed characterization. We show how the probe step is controlled through spatial propensities of the ionizing orbitals and the energy level structure of the dication. Both the final electronic state of the dication and the spin state of the ejected electron pair can be controlled through the time delay between the two ionizing pulses. We discuss how our results will extend to the preparation and measurement of attosecond electron dynamics.
