Using circularly polarized synchrotron radiation, the photoionization of HBr molecules was studied by angle- and spin-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy in the photon energy range from 11.7 eV to 21 eV. For photoelectrons corresponding to the final ionic states HBr+ X(2) Pi(3/2)(upsilon = 0) and X(2) Pi(1/2)(upsilon = 0), the energy dependence of the dynamical photoionization parameters was measured and compared with ab initio calculations for HBr+ by Raseev et al. and RRPA calculations for Kr+ by Huang et al.. This comparison indicates that, for energies above the electronic autoionization region, photoemission from the outer valence orbital exhibits distinct atomic behavior. By combining the experimental data for the cross section sigma and the spin polarization parameter A, sums of partial cross section contributions to sigma were determined and analyzed to obtain specific information on the outgoing partial electron waves. Furthermore, the validity of the so-called non-relativistic relationships for the dynamical photoionization parameters was tested as a function of equal photon and kinetic photoelectron energy, respectively.
