International Workshop and Winter School: Photoemission

February 21-27, 2010

Dijon, France


Report on Winter School "Photoemssion" by Xeniya Kozina


Since A. Einstein's explanation of the photoelectric effect in 1905, photoemission spectroscopy has been one of the major tools for probing the electronic structure of matter. The last two decades have seen a revival of the technique, because some of its traditional limitations (in resolution, probing depth, etc) could be overcome due to tremendous technical and conceptual advances in the field. This workshop provides a thorough introduction to the experimental and theoretical aspects of photoemission spectroscopy and presents the main recent developments and applications to condensed matter physics. The topics of the lectures include:

– core-level photoemission for chemical analysis

– photoelectron diffraction for surface analysis

– angle-resolved photoemission and band mapping

– magnetic and strongly correlated materials

– hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy

– resonant photoemission
