Abstract [en]

The Si 1s(-1), Si 2s(-1), and Si 2p(-1) photoelectron spectra of the SiX4 molecules with X = F, Cl, Br, CH3 were measured. From these spectra the Si 1s(-1) and Si 2s(-1) lifetime broadenings were determined, revealing a significantly larger value for the Si 2s(-1) core hole of SiF4 than for the same core hole of the other molecules of the sequence. This finding is in line with the results of the Si 2p(-1) core holes of a number of SiX4 molecules, with an exceptionally large broadening for SiF4. For the Si 2s(-1) core hole of SiF4 the difference to the other SiX4 molecules can be explained in terms of Interatomic Coulomb Decay (ICD)-like processes. For the Si 2p(-1) core hole of SiF4 the estimated values for the sum of the Intraatomic Auger Electron Decay (IAED) and ICD-like processes are too small to explain the observed linewidth. However, the results of the given discussion render for SiF4 significant contributions from Electron Transfer Mediated Decay (ETMD)-like processes at least plausible. On the grounds of our results, some more molecular systems in which similar processes can be observed are identified.
