The basic challenges of electron momentum spectroscopy (EMS) as it has guided our research efforts at Carleton University are outlined. These challenges are : (a) Are the spectroscopic factors obtained in EMS equivalent to the spectroscopic factors observed in photoelectron spectroscopy ? (b) Can experimental momentum profiles be related to the chemical reactivity of complex molecular systems ? (c) Are the basic assumptions of (e,2e) reaction theory valid for complex molecular systems ? Insights based on our efforts to address these questions are presented.
