Abstract

A study is made of the differential cross sections arising from the photoionization of H2+. Previous studies indicated surprising differences in the shapes of the angular distributions calculated from exterior complex scaling and 2C methods. To further explore these differences, we have calculated the angular distributions from the photoionization of H2+ using an independent two-body Coulomb function (2C) method and a distorted wave approach. As a final test, we also present calculations using a time-dependent technique. Our results confirm the discrepancies found previously and we present possible reasons for these differences.
