The R-matrix Floquet approach is applied to study the negative F and Cl ions in a light field. Detachment rates are obtained for detachment processes involving up to three photons. The results obtained in the present approach are compared to other experimental and theoretical results. For two- and three-photon processes reasonable agreement with other calculations has been found, while for two-photon detachment the results agree with the experimental cross sections. The three-photon results are in less good agreement with experiment although the larger error bars make accurate comparisons more difficult. The changes in the detachment behaviour for these ions are compared to each other as well as to the detachment behaviour of H.
