Ultra-violet photoelectron emission spectroscopy (UPS) has developed into an extremely sensitive probe of the valence band electronic structure of solids, and can be used to study the modification of this electronic structure caused by adsorption processes (1,2). It has been recognised that the additional information to be gained from investigation of the spatial distribution of photoemitted electrons is of extreme importance in fundamental studies of adsorption and gas-solid interactions (3).
