We report vibrationally resolved photoelectron angular distributions for photoionization of the C3Πg Rydberg state of O2. Comparison is made with recent experimental measurements of angular distributions which employ (2+1) resonant enhanced multiphoton ionization of the C3Πg state. The present theory treats the process as single-photon ionization from an unaligned Rydberg state, and qualitatively accounts for much of the observed trends. Non-Franck–Condon effects induced by the kσu shape resonance lead to a substantial dependence of the angular distributions on the vibrational state of the X2Πg ion. Discrepancies between our theoretical results and experiment are qualitatively discussed and tentatively attributed to residual electron correlations.
