Laser interaction whit the gas phase nucleobase adenine is studied. A linear TOF mass spectrometer is utilized for measurements that require high mass resolution, high sensitivity, and sufficient ion yields of low mass fragment cations. The ion mass spectra are discussed at different laser energy intensities and two temperatures. In contrast to previous studies a number light ion is present in the mass spectra. The ion formation curves for 23 different ions are measured for the laser energy range from about 109 to 1010 W cm–2 and masses between 1 and 43 besides mass 57 which was present in the mass spectra and will be discuss. Data were taken heating the sample at 235 Co. The number of 355nm absorbed photons was calculated accordingly to Keldysh theory and similar results were found using adenine -Ar mixture. Our results are compared with those reported formed by protons, electrons or multiple charged ions interactions. Different ions were found indicating the possible effect of multiphoton absorption.
