Synchrotron radiation sources, providing intense, tunable, polarized, and stable beams of ultraviolet and x-ray photons, are having a great impact on biology, physics, chemistry, materials science, and other areas of research. Synchrotron radiation has revolutionized solid-state photoelectron spectroscopy by enhancing its capabilities for investigating the electronic behavior of solids and solid surfaces. Several fundamental photoemission techniques that rely on synchrotron radiation are…

Photoemission Spectroscopy of the High-Temperature Superconductivity Gap

The data analysis requires a careful reconsideration of the standard Einstein-Fermi model of the photoelectric effect and offers an alternate way to measure superconductivity gaps, and can be used to study the directional properties of the gap, phenomena related to the coherence length, and possible departures from Fermi-liquid behavior.

X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is generally regarded as an important and key technique for the surface characterization and analysis of biomedical polymers.(1) This technique, also called

Modification of electronic and chemical structure at metal/cdte interfaces by pulsed laser annealing

We have measured the effects of metallization and thermal processing on the chemical interaction, band bending, and deep level formation at Au and In/CdTe interfaces using soft x-ray photoemission,



The application of electron spectroscopy to surface studies

The application of three branches of electron spectroscopy to surface studies, with particular emphasis on submonolayer chemisorption systems, is reviewed. The three branches are x-ray photoelectron

Surface energy bands and atomic position of Cl chemisorbed on cleaved Si(111)

Angle-resolved photoemission measurements using synchrotron radiation have been performed on a cleaved Si(111) surface covered to saturation with Cl. Two main Cl-induced peaks, identified as the

Normal photoelectron diffraction of the Se 3d level in Se overlayers on Ni(100)

Modulations of up to a factor of 2 were observed in the Se $3d$ photoelectron intensity normal to the surface, for selenium overlayers on Ni(100), as the photon energy was varied from 90 to 240 eV.

Electronic structure of metal hydrides. II. Band theory of Sc H 2 and Y H 2

Self-consistent band-structure calculations have been performed for Sc${\mathrm{H}}_{2}$ and Y${\mathrm{H}}_{2}$ using the Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker method. The results indicate a net charge transfer
