Abstract: Two-photon ionization cross sections from the rubidium ground state have been measured with both a cw 421-nm laser and a combination of cw 421- and 1002-nm lasers. The measurements were performed within a high-vacuum magneto-optical trap while the trapping lasers were switched off, exploiting the long trap lifetime and also the trap laser confinement. The two-photon cross sections were determined for the blue laser near resonance with the 6P(1/2) and 6P(3/2) states and compared with the estimates of a theoretical model. In near resonance with the 6P states, large two-photon photoionization cross sections were measured. (C) 2004 Optical Society of America
