Abstract

Anisotropies associated with momentum distributions along vectors parallel and perpendicular to bond axes in alkali bromide molecules are computed and analyzed. An attempt is made to relate these to charge cloud deformations accompanying molecular formation. Our analysis indicates that the parallel profile associated with the valence pi orbital is the dominating factor determining the relative shapes of the total profile anisotropies in the low momenta regions pz ≤ 0.5.
