Design of an Inverse Photoemission Spectrometer for the Study of Strongly Correlated Materials
MetadataShow full item record
The design and construction of a state-of-the-art ultra-high vacuum spectrometer for the performance of angle-resolved inverse photoemission spectroscopy is presented. Detailed descriptions of its most important components are included, especially the Geiger-Muller ultraviolet photodetectors. By building on recent developments in the literature, we expect our spectrometer to achieve resolution comparable or superior to that of other prominent groups, and in general be one of the foremost apparatus for studying the momentum dependence of the unoccupied states in strongly correlated materials. Summaries of the theory of angle-resolved inverse photoemission spectroscopy and the basics of ultra-high vacuum science are also included.
