Angle-Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy

  • Wentao Zhang
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The ARPES technique has seen continuous development with time. The distinct difference of the ARPES technique in this book is a high resolution spectroscopy system combined with a narrow band vacuum ultra-violet (VUV) laser, giving a total energy resolution better than 1 meV which has been greatly improved from the previous spectroscopy systems equipped with synchrotron light source or gas discharge lamp. In this chapter, a brief introduction to photoemission is given at first. Then based on the VUV laser, development of a new generation ARPES, another spin-resolve ARPES, and ARPES system based on a latest time-of-flight electron energy analyzer are introduced. Moreover, the angular mode test, distribution of Fermi level on detector, space charge effect, test of system resolution and an actual measurement on Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 on the VUV laser ARPES system is introduced in detail in the main text.
