4sigma(-1) inner valence photoionization dynamics of NO derived from photoelectron-photoion angular correlations. Academic Article uri icon


  • A complete description of the 4sigma photoionization dynamics of NO has been derived from angle resolved photoelectron-photoion-coincidence experiments. The combination of measurements performed with linearly and circularly polarized light has made it possible to obtain a unique set of complex dipole matrix elements. A comparison with multichannel-Schwinger-configuration-interaction calculations shows good agreement in the general shapes of the angular distributions due to the correct description of the main components and phase differences. Still, many transition moments agree only qualitatively.
