Abstract

We predict a huge dynamical boost from collective electron motion on the valence 3s photoionization of Mg in the Mg@ C60 molecule. Calculations have been performed in a framework of time-dependent local density approximation that includes coupling between dipole-allowed final state channels. Our results qualitatively agree with the recent predictions of a semiclassical model, however, significantly differing in magnitude. In particular, a strong dependence on the nature of the caged atom is found which is at odds with the prediction of the semiclassical result.
