Abstract: A general expression is given for the form of the angular distribution of molecular fragments produced by electron-induced dissociation of diatomic molecules. A model for parametrizing angular distributions is introduced which allows investigation of higher-order multipole corrections to the simple dipole-Born approximation. It is found that higher-order terms are significant and even dominate the form of the angular distribution at electron energies near thresholds involving large momentum transfer. The mode…
