Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 22)


Two recent developments in the spectroscopy of semiconductor interfaces are discussed: The use of various core level spectroscopies to selectively look at the interface atoms, and the application of inverse photoemission to observe unoccupied electronic states.

    The Madeleung energy also contributes to the ground state core level shift. It does not reverse the sign of the chemical shift but needs to be taken into account for a quantitative analysis.Google Scholar

    The residual polarization dependence of the bulk peaks is due to different collection geometries for s and p polarization, which cause different interface-to-bulk intensity ratios.Google Scholar
