We determine the first correction to the quadrupole operator in high-energy QCD beyond the transverse momentum dependent (TMD) limit of Weizs\"acker-Williams and linearly polarized gluon distributions. These functions give rise to isotropic, respectively, $\ensuremath{\sim}\mathrm{cos}2\ensuremath{\phi}$ angular distributions in deep inelastic scattering (DIS) dijet production. On the other hand, the correction produces a $\ensuremath{\sim}\mathrm{cos}4\ensuremath{\phi}$ angular dependence… Expand
