Using the photoelectron-energy-selected photoion coincidence technique, we find that photoions of BF3 with kinetic energy larger than 4 eV are predominantly F+ in the F 1s ionization region whereas B+ is more intense than F+ at the F 1s→2a2″ excitation. Two partial cross sections σ∥ and σ⊥ for A1′→E′ parallel and A1′→A2″ perpendicular transitions are obtained from the angular distribution measurement of energetic photoions and the symmetries of some F 1s core excited states are confirmed. The dissociation dynamics of the F 1s-12a2″ core excited state are discussed in detail.
