Abstract
ngular distributions of the CO+(A 2Π) photoelectrons and of the CO+(A 2Π→X 2Σ+) fluorescence are computed in the vicinity of the 1s-1πresonant excitation of the CO molecule. In the calculations, lifetime vibrational interference and the direct transition amplitude for population of the A 2Π(v′) states were taken into account ab initio. The weak direct photoionization channel induces broad exciting-photon energy range dispersions of the angular distribution parameters βAe(ω) and β2AX(ω), and the nuclear vibrational motion causes variations of the computed parameters across the positions of the CO(vr) vibronic states. Present calculations are in good agreement with available vibrationally and angularly resolved resonant Auger spectra. Theoretical β2AX(ω) parameters are in agreement with the experimental results from the polarization analysis of the CO+(A-X) fluorescence induced by linearly polarized synchrotron radiation.
