Title: Valence-orbital-electron momentum distributions for butanone

Abstract

We report here the measurements of the complete valence shell binding energy spectra and the valence-orbital momentum profiles of butanone using the binary (e,2e) electron momentum spectroscopy. The impact energy was 1200 eV plus the binding energy and the symmetric noncoplanar kinematics was used. The experimental momentum profiles of the valence orbitals are compared with the theoretical momentum distributions calculated using Hartree-Fock and density functional theory methods with various basis sets. The experimental measurements are generally described by theoretical calculations except for summed 4a{sup ''}, 15a{sup '}, 3a{sup ''}, and 14a{sup '} orbital and summed 8a{sup '}, 7a{sup '}, and 6a{sup '} orbitals.

  • We study the quark helicity distributions at large x in perturbative QCD, taking into account contributions from the valence Fock states of the nucleon which have nonzero orbital angular momentum. These states are necessary to have a nonzero anomalous magnetic moment. We find that the quark orbital angular momentum contributes a large logarithm to the negative helicity quark distributions in addition to its power behavior, scaling as (1-x)^5\log^2(1-x) in the limit of x\to 1. Our analysis shows that the ratio of the polarized over unpolarized down quark distributions, \Delta d/d, will still approach 1 in this limit. By comparing withmore » the experimental data, we find that this ratio should cross zero at x\approx 0.75.« less
  • Valence orbital momentum distributions, rho(q), are obtained for s-triazine, C/sub 3/H/sub 3/N/sub 3/, from (e,2e) spectroscopy and split valence SCFMO calculations. The separation energy spectrum simulated using the calculated rho(q) and ionization energies from Green's function calculations is in good agreement with experiment from 9--20 eV, but at higher energy the simulated spectrum has higher intensity than experiment, indicating that the Green's function calculation underestimates the complexity of the inner valence region. The calculated momentum distributions have their maxima at higher values than observed experimentally for the outermost valence orbitals, but the difference in momentum distributions between the antisymmetric 4e'more » N2p lone pair orbital of s-triazine and the N2p lone pair orbital of ammonia is reproduced well by the calculations. Similarly, calculated and experimental differences of Fourier transformed rho(q) for the 4e' and 3a/sup prime//sub 1/ N2p lone pair orbitals of triazine are in agreement and can be interpreted using plots of 4e' and 3a/sup //sub 1/ orbital averages and differences from the SCFMO calculations. The Fourier transformed momentum distribution of the 4e' orbital clearly shows the presence of both nearest-neighbor C and second-nearest-neighbor N interactions.« less

  • The momentum distributions of valence electrons for acetylene molecules were determined by the (e, 2e) technique. This technique involves knock-out of each electron of interest by electron impact with complete determination of the momenta of the incident and out going electrons.(AIP)
  • Momentum densities obtained from the Heitler-London (HL) wave functions for diatomic molecules and those from the corresponding valence-bond (VB) wave functions including ionic terms are compared. In each case they show maxima in the direction perpendicular to the bond. However, the dependence of momentum densities on mutual orientations of the two electronic momenta is quite complex in the latter case. The improvement in the Compton profile on including the ionic terms is illustrated with the example of H/sub 2/. The momentum densities obtained from the VB wave function constructed from orthogonalized atomic orbitals (OAO) were also examined. The HL wavemore » function with OAOS leads to the same momentum distribution as the repulsive state HL wave function constructed from overlapping AOS.« less
