New Frontiers of Standing-Wave Photoelectron Spectroscopy
Speaker: Alexander Gray (Temple University)
Over the past decade, standing-wave photoelectron spectroscopy (SW-XPS) has evolved into a powerful and versatile non-destructive technique for probing element-specific electronic, magnetic, and structural properties of buried layers and interfaces with sub-nanometer depth resolution. In this talk, I will discuss several promising future directions in this emergent field stemming from experimental and theoretical studies wherein SW-XPS is combined (or used in-tandem) with other x-ray techniques, such as hard x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (HAXPES), angle-resolved photoemission (ARPES), x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), and photoemission microscopy (PEEM), adding extra dimensions to the measurement and thus widening the scope of scientific and technological questions accessible via the use of x-rays.
