A comprehensive investigation of the emission characteristics for electrons induced by X-rays of a few hundred eV at grazing-incidence angles on an atomically clean Cu(111) sample during laser excitation is presented. Electron energy spectra due to intense infrared laser irradiation are investigated at the BESSY II slicing facility. Furthermore, the influence of the corresponding high degree of target excitation (high peak current of photoemission) on the properties of Auger and photoelectrons… Expand

Dynamics of space-charge acceleration of X-ray generated electrons emitted from a metal surface
Abstract The so-called vacuum space-charge acceleration of emitted electrons triggered by absorption of soft X-rays (a few 100 eV) under intense near-infrared laser excitation is studiedExpand
Multidimensional photoemission spectroscopy—the space-charge limit
Photoelectron spectroscopy, especially at pulsed sources, is ultimately limited by the Coulomb interaction in the electron cloud, changing energy and angular distribution of the photoelectrons. AExpand
