Abstract
We report on the observation of discrete structures in the electron energy distribution for strong fielddouble ionization of argon at 394 nm. The experimental conditions were chosen in order to ensure anonsequential ejection of both electrons with an intermediate rescattering step. We have found discreteabove-threshold ionization like peaks in the sum energy of both electrons, as predicted by all quantummechanical calculations. More surprisingly, however, is the observation of two above-threshold ionizationcombs in the energy distribution of the individual electrons.
