The surface sensitivity is maximized by the use of soft x-ray synchrotron radiation SR. In the context of couds laboratory studies, XPS is particularly suitable for the identification of chemical bonds showing the functionalization of surfaces and materials and for the calculation of stoichiometric ratios of thin layers.

This allows us to study, for example, the distribution of the surface dipoles. The small ring in the center is the Shockley surface state. Details refer to L. Details refer to O. Thus successive zoom in the interested region or surface structure become simpler. The lenses are magnetic. B 60, Stereographic plots are used to show the correlation between surface assigned to major orientation.

They have characteristic binding energy which depends on the element, orbital and chemical environment of the atom. Spatially resolved surface chemical state analysis down to 50 nm XPEEM can provide the elemental map of preferential grafting of p-MAN polymer on a gold patterned silicon substrate.

The surface Brillouin zone is marked by a black hexagon.

This technique allows the detection of virtually all elements present on the surface probing depth 1 to 10nm. The first is based on the electron microscopy technology developed by Telieps and Bauer. The advantage of LEEM is the intensity of the beam, which permit the fast scan on spectroscppie sample surface with high spatial resolution, and also the possibility of using special mode of microscopy, like the mirror electron microscopy MEM.


In addition, synchrotron-based XPEEM is one of the most powerful spectro-microscopic techniques for studying the chemical and electronic structures of thin film systems, combined with the tunability and polarizability of x-ray sources and high brilliance of synchrotron radiation sources.

Spatially resolved surface chemical state analysis down to 50 nm. The time resolution of this type of energy analyzer can be reduced to below ps. The reflectivity is then considerably enhanced, while the transmission is very small.

X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)

The different chemical states of oxygen bound to silicon and to titanium are observable in the local spectra reconstructed from the image series. Firstly, it avoids the intrinsic problem derived from the application of high voltage into sample. The use of a novel design of a photoelectron microscope in combination to an imaging energy filter for momentum resolved specrroscopie detection.

Firstly, the imaging condition corresponds to the approximately Gaussian optics. The grain orientation is determined by electron backscattering diffraction EBSD. High spatial and energy resolution can be achieved by the fully energy filtered XPEEM, the spatial resolution down to a few tens of nanometers have been achieved. That is, the concerned electrons are very xpectroscopie to the optics axes.

The second concept spectrosvopie in PEEM is presented by the system with pure electrostatic lens, as shown in leftside figure. The sample is negative biased relative to the objective lens, typically kV, as illustrated in right side figure. Through the photoelectric effect, photoelectrons are ejected from the surface illuminated with a X-ray source.


Most laboratory-based PEEMs use spectdoscopie concept.

High transmission is particularly important especially for highest resolution imaging XPS with monochromated laboratory X-ray sources. Details refer to B.

Compared with the first concept, it is simpler for two reasons. XPS, X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy is a surface analysis technique which provides both chemical and electronic properties.

Thus, the electrons interact with the electrical field on the top of sample surface. Together with a time resolved imaging detector, it is possible to combine spatial, momentum, energy, and time resolution of photoelctrons within the same instrument.

Speectroscopie analyser allows high transmission imaging at kinetic energies far from threshhold without sacrificing the lateral and energy resolution of the instrument. Secondly, the optics are electrostatic: The electrons are decelerated till a limited kinetic energy so that it will be reflected before spectrscopie the surface of sample.

The potential of the sample is near ground, while the extraction lens is at a positive high voltage.

Hoffmann, Shao-Ju Shih, D. Figure shows a k -space image of Cu taken at the Fermi energy with an exposure time of 5 min excited with He I. There are two advantages for having the very high electron energy in the column of PEEM.
