Photoemission is one of the principal techniques for the characterization and investigation of condensed matter systems. The field has experienced many developments in recent years, which may also be put down to important achievements in closely related areas. This timely and up-to-date handbook is written by experts in the field who provide the background needed by both experimentalists and theorists. It represents an interesting framework for showing the connection between theory and experiment by bringing together different concepts in the investigation of the properties of materials. The work addresses the geometric and electronic structure of solid surfaces and interfaces, theoretical methods for direct computation of spectra, experimental techniques for data acquisition, and physical models for direct data interpretation. It also includes such recent developments as full hemisphere acceptance in photoemission, two-electron photoemission, (e, 2e) electron diffraction, and photoelectron-electron/hole interaction.

About Author

Both editors are well-known and respected in their field. The list of contributors includes researchers of high standing. Dr. Michel A. Van Hove is a Staff Scientist in the Materials Sciences Division and the Advanced Light Source of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California, USA, and an Adjunct Professor in the Physics Department of the University of California in Davis, California, USA. His research interests focus on the structural, chemical, electronic and magnetic properties of surfaces, interfaces, and related nano-structures. The emphasis is on modelling experimental techniques to extract such information from actual materials. Professor Dr. Wolfgang Schattke teaches theoretical physics at the Institut fuer Theoretische Physik und Astrophysik der Christian-Albrechts-Universitaet zu Kiel. His research concerns solid state physics including its many-body aspects. It focuses on the electronic properties of bulk and surface systems using ab-initio methods to quantitatively calculate spectroscopic data that are directly available from measurement.
