Nanoscale Angle-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy

  • Koji HoribaEmail author


Photoelectron spectroscopy or electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA) is a powerful technique for investigating the electronic structure of solid surfaces. From the angular distribution of valence band photoelectron spectra, we can obtain the dispersion of valence bands in the reciprocal space of solids. This technique is called angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). On the other hand, the angular distribution of core-level photoelectron spectra corresponds to the probing depth dependence of the photoelectron spectra and can be converted into the depth profiling information.
