Angle-resolved ion yield spectroscopy revealed that ionic fragmentation of a T[sub d] symmetry molecule CF[sub 4] is anisotropic following F 1s photoabsorption. The nuclear motion in the Auger-final state resulting in this anisotropic fragmentation is a consequence of asymmetric nuclear motion or symmetry breaking in the core-excited state, caused by vibronic coupling. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
