    Abstract

    Partial photoionization cross sections σN(Eγ) and photoelectron angular distributions βN(Eγ) were measured for the final ionic states He+(N>4) in the region between the N=8 and N=13 thresholds (Eγ>78.155 eV) using the cold target recoil ion momentum spectroscopy technique (COLTRIMS). Comparison of the experimental data with two independent sets of theoretical predictions reveals disagreement for the branching ratios to the various HeN+ states. The angular distributions just below the double ionization threshold suggest an excitation process for highly excited N states similar to the Wannier mechanism for double ionization.
