The C 1s-1uΠu state of a linear molecule CO2 splits into two states. The lower state becomes bent and the upper state remains linear. As a direct probe of this Renner-Teller effect, the bent and linear geometries of the Renner-Teller pair states have been probed by means of triple-ion-coincidence momentum imaging.
