Synchrotron Radiation Photoelectron Spectroscopy

  • Jun FujiiEmail author


Making use of synchrotron radiation (SR) as a source of photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) has number of advantages compared to using ordinary laboratory light sources like laser, UV discharge lamps, and X-ray tubes. The light sources of most PES stations in modern synchrotron facilities are undulators followed by monochromators, both of which are designed for required photon energy ranges.
