Title: Resonance signatures in the body-frame valence photoionization of CF 4

Abstract

Here, we present a combined experimental and theoretical investigation of the electron dynamics and body-frame angular dependence of valence photo-single ionization of CF 4 and subsequent dissociation into CF 3+ and F. Ionization from a valence t 2 orbital shows overlapping shape resonances close to threshold that couple to the same total symmetry, leading to striking changes in the photoelectron angular distributions when viewed in the body-frame.
