Binding energy shifts between atomic and solid states have been observed with improved accuracy for All 4f and Ag 3d core levels applying a simultaneous measurement method. Also the 3d photoelectron spectrum and binding energies of free Ag atoms have been observed for the first time. New values determined as free atom to bulk solid shifts deviate considerably from previous estimate for Au but agree reasonably well for Ag. The valence bands were also found to shift rather accurately by the same… CONTINUE READING
