Abstract

Abstract Photodetachment is a fundamental ionization process by which electrons are ejected from negative ions following the absorption of photons. Electron correlation plays a more enhanced role in photodetachment than in photoionization. Experimentally measured photodetachment cross sections serve to guide theory since they constitute sensitive tests of the appropriateness of wavefunctions used in calculations. The status of interacting beam measurements of photodetachment cross sections is reviewed.
