We report the first observation of nonresonant excess photon absorption (for ionization as well as detachment) in competition with the single photon process. A 35 keV negative hydrogen ion beam is irradiated with focused Nd:YAG laser pulses; the 1.165 eV photon energy exceeds the electron binding energy by 0.41 eV. The time of flight spectrum of detached electrons exhibits the absorption of one and two photons. The detached electrons exit with a P wave angular distribution for the one-photondoi:10.1103/physrevlett.78.1656 fatcat:hcpuj7b2p5fxnbhkyrllmng5wa
