Abstract

A new experimental setup for measurement of the angular distributions of energy selected Auger electrons emitted from fixed in space molecules is presented. The system is based on two identical ion detectors with a small angular acceptance placed at 0° and 90° relative to the polarization axis of the incident radiation, and a high luminosity double-toroidal electron analyzer combined with position sensitive detection. This setup allows selection of the molecular alignment for σ and π ionization channels simultaneously and provides an energy and ejection angle measurement of the outgoing electron. The performance in terms of energy and angular resolution, as well as the calibration procedure, are discussed. Sample results obtained on the carbon monoxide ionized above the C ls threshold are presented.
