Angle-resolved valence-band resonant-photoemission of nickel metal has been measured close to the (Formula presented) core-level thresholds with synchrotron radiation. The well-known 6-eV correlation satellite has an intensity enhancement of about two orders of magnitude at resonance. The angular dependence of the photoemission intensity has been studied as function of photon energy and provides unambiguous evidence for interference effects all the way up to the resonance maximum. The observation of different angular asymmetries, (Formula presented), for the valence band and the satellite is discussed in connection to the origin of the resonant-photoemission process and the character of the satellite. © 1999 The American Physical Society.
