Abstract

Recent studies on nuclear dynamics of core-excited and Auger final states are reviewed. Emphasis is given to the nuclear motion of the core-excited states and its influence to the subsequent decay and fragmentation processes. As specific examples we discuss two-dimensional nuclear motion caused by the O 1s → 2b2 excitation in H2O and by the C 1s → 2πu excitation in CO2, as well as out-of-plane motion caused by B 1s → 2a2″ excitation and asymmetric stretching motion caused by the F 1s ionization in BF3.
