The combination of high-resolution electron energy analyzers and 3rd generation synchrotron radiation sources opens up possibilities to study molecular inner-shell photo- and Auger electron emission in a new level of detail. Even weak molecular perturbations of the energy levels and angular emission patterns can be studied. In this report, some examples of such studies are given based on recent experiments at the Advanced Light Source, using a Scienta SES-200 electron spectrometer. Examples of carbon 1s photoemission of ethyne, sulphur 2p photoemission of carbonyl sulphide, and resonant Auger electron emission of carbon dioxide are presented. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Electronic spectra of LiNH3 and its partially and fully deuterated analogues are reported for the first time. The spectra have been recorded in the near-infrared and are consistent with two electronic transitions in close proximity, the Ã2E-X2A1 and B2A1-X2A1 systems. Vibrational structure is...
