Photoemission tomography and fundamental quantum dynamics
The electronic wave functions of molecules, the orbitals, can be imaged in momentum space with photoemission tomography. With its help, we investigate the electronic structure and the chemical state of adsorbed molecules in detail, and even “observe the unobservable”: the complete quantum mechanical wave function including its phase can be reconstructed from photoemission tomographs.
