The Use of Synchrotron Radiation in UPS: Theory and Results

The use of photoemission as a tool for the investigation of the electronic structure of matter has grown at an explosive rate in the last 15 years. For those of you who have become interested in the field in the last few years, it is probably difficult to realize that fifteen or twenty years ago only a small number of papers (approximately 10–20) were being published throughout the world on photoemission per year. Today there are many individual laboratories or groups which publish more than this number per year and the total number of papers are in the hundreds per year. To properly appreciate the growing effect of the use of synchrotron radiation on photoemission, one must view the opportunities opened by synchrotron radiation in terms of the continuous development of photoemission as a tool for exploring the electronic structure of matter. One aspect of this development would be the study of atoms or molecules in the gaseous state. We will not attempt to cover this aspect here but will concentrate on the use of photoemission to study the electronic structure of solids or gases sorbed on or in solids.
