We present results of photon-stimulated desorption (PSD) measurements from the high-T c , 123 superconductors, MBa2Cu3O7 x where M = Y or Dy. The predominant desorbing species is O2. Excitation spectra in the energy range 60–140 eV show structure due to excitation of Cu(3p) and Ba(4d) electrons. In the energy range 10–30 eV spectral features may be related to excitation of Ba(5p) and O(2s) electrons with possible contributions from bulk and surface plasmons.
