 Title    Recent Advances in Electron Momentum Spectroscopy  
 Abstract    The flexibility of the (e, 2e) technique or "electron momentum spectroscopy" (EMS) in obtaining information on the electronic structure of atoms, molecules, and solids is demonstrated. High-resolution EMS measurements for argon, including the first measurements of momentum profiles belonging to the 2 P° and 2 D e -manifolds, are used to demonstrate the technique for atomic targets. The d-wave transitions in argon are entirely due to initial-state correlations. The first (e, 2e) measure-ments on an excited target, and also on an oriented target, are discussed. Sodium atoms are pumped to the m, = +1 state of the excited 3p-state by cr + -light from a laser. The (e, 2e) measurements on this excited state are in excellent agreement with the momentum density given by the 3p (m, — 1) Hartree-Fock wavefunction. The recent measurements of the valence-electron momentum distribu-tions for ethyne, as well as some earlier results for water, are used as an example of the application of EMS to the study of molecules. The application of the EMS technique to measure spectral momentum densities in condensed-matter targets is demonstrated by some recent results on amor-phous carbon.
