Photoelectron asymmetry parameters β and partial photoionization cross sections have been measured for ionization from the molecular orbitals of CF3Br and CF2Br2 using synchrotron radiation in the photon energy range from 19 to 115 eV. Cooper minima are observed in the β spectra for ionizations from orbitals with substantial bromine 4p character. The measured positions of the minima have been compared to the results of non-relativistic calculations performed for different elements of the periodic system. Several shape resonances have been observed in β spectra associated with orbitals of predominantly F(2p) character. Ionization from the Br(3d) subshell has also been observed and studied in some detail. Auger transitions involving 3d electrons have been observed at higher photon energies.
