Abstract : A report is given of observations of the ionization of atomic cesium by the simulataneous absorption of three ruby laser quanta. The results appear to be in qualitative agreement with theory, and indicate that circularly polarized light produces ionization about twice as efficiently as linearly polarized light, suggesting a new kind of polarized electron source.
