Photoelectron Spectrometry: Experiments with Atoms

  • Manfred O. Krause
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (SPEPO, volume 18)


These lectures will present a brief review of the technique of Photoelectron Spectrometry and outline its capacity and potential to delineate the electronic structure and dynamics of atoms. Experimental results and, in particular, those photoelectron spectrometric experiments that give evidence of many-electron interactions in atoms will be discussed. I shall emphasize experiments that are especially instructive or promising for future work in the area of electron-electron correlation effects. This should introduce the student to the characteristics of the technique and the manifestations of many-electron interactions in photoelectron spectra, and at the same time, will familiarize him with the latest experimental results, since the most relevant data are of recent origin.

    These designations can be considered equivalent, although n ℓ, ε ℓ is the most general description, and the term shakeup could, but must not necessarily be restricted to cases where the sudden approximation (shakeoff theory) is valid. A third term, configuration interaction satellites, is also used to designate another variant of simultaneous excitation and ionization. An analogous consideration applies to shakeoff and ε ℓ, ε′ ℓ′ nomenclature. Note that, here as elsewhere, “shakeoff” is often used as a general term that included “shakeup”; similarly, “excitation” is often meant to include “ionization”.Google Scholar
