Abstract

The frequency domain of non-resonant two-photon ionization, defined as a frequency separation from half of the ionization energy to the excitation energy, was investigated using density functional theory calculations. Several organic compounds have the potential for use in the measurement of the ultrashort optical pulse width in the ultraviolet region using an autocorrelator consisting of a mass spectrometer as a two-photon-response detector.
