Imaging molecular shapes with molecular-frame photoelectron angular distributions from core hole ionization

We demonstrate, for a class of molecules containing a single heavy atom, the striking result that molecular-frame photoelectron angular distributions resulting from core-level ionization can be used to obtain three-dimensional images of the target molecule at low photoelectron energies. We demonstrate this finding with the results of theoretical calculations on methane, ammonia and water.
