We consider theoretically laser-assisted ionization of a helium atom by electron impact at large momentum transfer. Fully differential cross sections of these processes are studied as functions of the recoil-ion momentum for the cases when the residual He+ ion is left both in the bound (n = 1 and n = 2) and in the continuum states in the presence of a linearly-polarized laser field with frequency w = 1.55 eV and intensity I = 5×1011W/cm2. We inspect how the orientation of the polarization influences the laser-assisted momentum profiles using different models of the helium wave function. It is found that the Kroll-Watson sum rule is well applicable in the (e, 3 − 1e) case.
