Multi-particle momentum correlations extracted using covariance methods on multiple-ionization of diiodomethane molecules by soft-X-ray free-electron laser pulses
Momenta of ions from diiodomethane molecules after multiple ionization by soft-X-ray free-electron-laser pulses are measured. Correlations between the ion momenta are extracted by covariance methods formulated for the use in multiparticle momentum-resolved ion time-of-flight spectroscopy. Femtosecond dynamics of the dissociating multiply charged diiodomethane cations is discussed and interpreted by using simulations based on a classical Coulomb explosion model including charge evolution.
