Determination of absolute surface coverage with sub-monolayer sensitivity is demonstrated using evanescent-wave cavity ring-down spectroscopy (EW-CRDS) and conventional CRDS by employing conservation of the absolute integrated absorption intensity between gas and adsorbed phases. The first C-H stretching overtones of trichloroethylene (TCE),(More)
Interference effects on electron momentum profiles have been studied using binary (e, 2e) spectroscopy for the three outermost molecular orbitals of CF(4), which are composed of the F 2p nonbonding atomic orbitals. An analysis of the measured spherically averaged electron momentum densities has clearly shown the presence of oscillatory structures having(More)
Vibrational effects on electron momentum distributions (EMDs) of outer-valence orbitals of oxetane are computed with a comprehensive consideration of all vibrational modes. It is found that vibrational motions influence EMDs of all outer-valence orbitals noticeably. The agreement between theoretical and experimental momentum profiles of the first five(More)
We report a theoretical study of vibronic effects on the 1t(1) → 3s Rydberg excitation in CF(4) induced by electron impact. The generalized oscillator strength for the excitation has been calculated using theoretical wave functions at the equation-of-motion coupled cluster singles and doubles level. In the calculation vibronic effects have been taken into(More)
The interpretation of experimental electron momentum distributions (EMDs) of ethanol, one of the simplest molecules having conformers, has confused researchers for years. High-level calculations of Dyson orbital EMDs by thermally averaging the gauche and trans conformers as well as molecular dynamical simulations failed to quantitatively reproduce the(More)
We report an angle-resolved electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) study on the valence-shell electronic excitations in CF(4). Experimentally momentum-transfer-dependent generalized oscillator strengths (GOSs) or GOS profiles for low-lying electronic excitations at 12.6, 13.8, and 14.8 eV are derived from EELS spectra measured at an incident electron(More)
