Angular Distributions Of S-Subshell Electrons In Open-Shell Atoms: 3S Photoionization Of Atomic Chlorine
A determination of the angular distribution parameter β of the atomic chlorine 3s photoelectrons over the photon-energy range from 29 to 70 eV has been carried out using electron spectrometry in conjunction with synchrotron radiation. Our results confirm the basic theoretical predictions that β, for s-subshell photoionization in open-shell atoms, is in general term and photon-energy dependent, in contrast to closed-shell atoms where β is always 2 nonrelativistically. However, our measurements of β for the Cl+ 3s(1,3P) channels demonstrate that significant details are not handled well by simple Hartree-Fock theory. © 2000 The American Physical Society.
