The double differential cross-sections of outer s-shells photoelectrons have been measured for noble gases He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe and the H2 molecule by linearly polarized photons. A nonzero left-right asymmetry has been observed relative to the mirroring plane that is perpendicular to the polarization direction of the photon beam.
