We have calculated the photoionization cross section of the HOMO, HOMO-1 and HOMO-2 photoemission bands of C60from threshold up to 250 eV of photon energy. The calculated HOMO-2/HOMO-1 intensity ratio is in excellent agreement with recent experimental data. The computational method uses a multicentric expansion of the scattering wave function and a density functional theory (DFT) Hamiltonian. Time dependent DFT calculations suggest that the oscillatory phenomenon is essentially of single particle nature. An interpretation of the experimental findings in terms of the σ-πsymmetries of the ionized orbitals is provided.
