We study the adsorption behaviour of organic molecules by means of the X-ray Standing Wave (XSW) technique. By measuring XPS and Auger intensities this method allows the precise and direct determination of absorbate/substrate geometries. Our XSW experiments with the aromatic molecules PTCDA (perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydride) and F16CuPc (perfluorinated copper-phthalocyanine) show that higher multipole excitations can be non-negligible. In fact, the breakdown of the dipole approximation, which can qualitatively change the signal, is a fundamental issue in XPS in general and a challenge for theory. Depending on the atomic number, orbital momentum, photon and initial state energy these non-dipole contributions can significantly influence the resulting effective coherent position and fraction. We discuss approaches to the analysis of these fundamental effects that can be relevant for many XSW applications.
