Interference effects on electron momentum profiles have been studied using binary (e, 2e) spectroscopy for the three outermost molecular orbitals of CF 4, which are composed of the F 2p nonbonding atomic orbitals. An analysis of the measured spherically averaged electron momentum densities has clearly shown the presence of oscillatory structures having direct information about the internuclear distance between the F atoms. Furthermore, it is demonstrated that the phase of the oscillatory structures depends upon the orientation in space of the constituent atomic orbitals.
