Longitudinal momentum spectra and electron drift directions are considered for several laser wavelengths in non-sequential double ionization of helium using three-dimensional classical ensembles. In this model, the familiar doublet for wavelength 800 nm and intensities of order 5 × 1014 W cm-2 becomes a triplet for wavelength 1314 nm, then a doublet for 2017 nm. The results are explained based on whether the post-ionization impulse from the laser results in backward drift for one or both electrons. © 2009 IOP Publishing Ltd.
