The absolute yields of multiply charge ions of the
noble gases argon, krypton, and xenon as functions of
laser intensity at l=586 nm is reported. The
measurements were performed with a well characterized
picosecond dye laser in the range 1013 to 4 X 1014
W/cm2. Charge states up to Ar+4, Kr+4, and Xe+6 were
observed at the highest intensities. An extension of
the Keldysh-Reiss-Faisal theory which accounts for the
Coulomb field of the residual ion is presented and
found to be in good agreement with the experimental
results with no adjustable parameters.
