Azimuthal asymmetry of the extracted electron in field ionization of a hydrogen atom with orbital angular momentum

Abstract : The tunneling ionization of a hydrogen atom excited in the presence of a static electric field is investigated for the case where, before being extracted, the electron has an orbital angular momentum L perpendicular to the field E. The escaping electron has a nonzero mean transverse velocity in the direction of E cross . This asymmetry is similar to the Collins effect in the fragmentation into hadrons of a transversely polarized quark. In addition, the linear Stark effect make and oscillate in time. The degree of asymmetry is calculated at leading order in E for an initial state of maximum transverse . The conditions for the observation of this asymmetry are discussed.
