Spin- and Angle-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy

  • Taichi OkudaEmail author


SARPES is a method in which the feature of spin resolution is added to normal ARPES measurement (see Sec. Angle-Resolved UPS). By SARPES measurement, one can obtain all the information of quantum states of electrons, i.e., energy, momentum, and spin, and thus, the measurement is sometimes called as “complete experiment.” SARPES is, therefore, one of the most powerful tools to investigate the complete electronic structure (band structure with spin resolution) of solids.
