STEREO PHOTOGRAPHY OF ATOMIC ARRANGEMENT AND ATOMIC-ORBITAL ANALYSIS BY TWO-DIMENSIONAL PHOTOELECTRON SPECTROSCOPY
The circular dichroism of photoelectron forward focusing peak rotation around the incident-light axis reflects the orbital angular momentum of the excited core level and is inversely proportional to the distance between the emitter and scatterer atoms. This is the basis for the stereo photograph of the atomic arrangements. These rotations are also found in the case of the valence band excitation. The rotation for the 2pxy band of graphite was about twice those from 2s and 2pz bands, corresponding to the difference in the orbital angular momentum quantum number of each band. Simultaneously, photoelectron intensity from the bottom of the 2s band was observed at the Γ point of every other Brillouin zone reflecting the photoelectron structure factor that corresponds to the interference of photoelectron waves from 2s atomic orbitals within a unit cell. The origin of the dual behavior that appeared in the observation of a local angular momentum from a delocalized valence band is discussed.
