rotational doppler effect


A rotating nitrogen molecule (N2) emits an electron when hit by an x-ray photon. The rotation can either boost or detract from the electron energy, which leads to a wider range of energies for detected electrons than a stationary molecule would give. This effect has now been detected in the electron energy spectrum. Credit: APS Graphics / Physical Review Focus
