Abstract

Over the last four decades an experimental method has been developed for looking at electron orbitals in momentum space. The method, called electron momentum spectroscopy (EMS), is based on the electron-impact ionizing reaction near the Bethe ridge at incident electron energies of the order of 1 keV or higher. This account reviews frontiers of the field, involving the first approach to molecular frame EMS that enables one to look at molecular orbitals in three-dimensional form.
