Completely classical analysis of the strong-field two-electron photoelectric effect, or non-sequential double ionization (NSDI), gives surprisingly full reproduction of major experimental points. We find that tunnelling is not required for NSDI and that relative phasings of ejected electron jitter motions are intuitively related to ion recoil momentum.
