The yields of highly charged atomic ions produced in the exposure of xenon clusters embedded in helium nanodroplets by intense colored double pulses show a notable sensitivity on the order of the subpulses. The only slight difference in their spectral composition leads to a flipping of the optimal laser parameters for effective multielectron ionization above certain charge states, which appears to be quite robust with respect to the chosen pulse fluence and reflects an avalanche-like developing cluster ionization scenario.
