Conference paper
Part of the The IBM Research Symposia Series book series (IRSS)


A discussion of ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy is given, A central theme which is applied to photoemission is that both theory and experiment profit from mutual interaction. Examples which are discussed include experimental and theoretical studies of d-bands in Cu, studies of Au including liquid Au, studies of the Pd/H system, the magnetic semiconductor of EuS, and chemisorbed CO on Ni.

    The use of cesiated surfaces to lower the work function has been very successful in studies of the noble metals (C. N. Berglund and W. E. Spicer, Phys. Rev. 136, A1030 (1964); ibid, Phys. Rev. 136, A1044 (1964); Ref. 7) where it has permitted new structure to be observed, and has stimulated theoretical calculations (see Ref. 7).Google Scholar

    Currently, measurements above hν = 11.6 eV are generally limited to the strong spectral lines of He and Ne gas dis-charge radiation (hν = 16.8, 21.2, 26.9 and 40.8 eV). Experiments underway by several groups using synchrotron radiation or spark source radiation are expected to extend measurements to all photon energies in the range 5–50 eV.Google Scholar
