Resolving the Pu Electronic Structure Enigma: Past Lessons and Future Directions
The nature and limitations of the photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) of Pu is discussed, particularly the absence of detailed fine structure. A novel experiment, Fano Spectroscopy, is suggested as a means to obtain additional fine structure, with which to bench-mark and differentiate theoretical models.
