Summary Photoemission Spectroscopy and Microscopy

  • Photoelectron excitation with standing waves generated by reflection from multilayer mirror samples or substrates

  • Concentration profiles for constituent layers

  • Interface concentration profiles/average roughness

  • Element-specific magnetization profiles from MCD (MgO/Fe)

  • Complementary information from SX resonant and hard x-ray data, Bragg and Kiessig effects

  • Interface-specific core-level shifts (Mn in STO/LSMO)

  • Depth-resolved densities of states (MgO/Fe; STO/LSMO)

  • Depth-resolved photoelectron microscopy (Co microdots)
