Convergent close-coupling results for the triply differential cross section for double photoionization of He that include dipole–quadrupole terms are shown to have improved agreement (as compared to dipole approximation results) with recent experiments using linearly polarized light (Knapp A et al 2005 J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. 38 615) for a number of kinematical configurations.
