Photoionization of Atomic Systems in Squeezed States of Light

The ionization of an atom by a nonclassical electromagnetic field has been studied by a method developed to obtain results for an arbitrary initial state of the field, including squeezed vacuum with a large average number of photons. Characteristics of the ionization of atomic systems by nonclassical squeezed light have been demonstrated for the first time. In contrast to the case of a coherent field, a significantly smoother decrease in the contributions of different above-threshold channels to ionization has been found. Features of photo-electron spectra in continuum have been revealed for the first time as a significant overlapping of peaks from different ionization channels.
