The Use of Spin-Polarized Electrons in Surface Analysis

  • J. Kirschner
Part of the Springer Series in Surface Sciences book series (SSSUR, volume 5)

Abstract

Electron spectroscopies have been playing a vital role in the development of surface science over the past two decades. Information on the sample has mostly been obtained from the energy and angular distribution of emitted or scattered electrons, while the “spin” property has been exploited to a much lesser extent. This chapter is intended to show what kind of new information can be gained if the electron spin is explicitly taken into account, in addition to the electron momentum.
