A laser-based system for time-resolved photoemission spectroscopy using up to 6.2 eV photons is presented. The versatility of the laser source permits several combinations of pump and probe photon energies with pulse durations of 50–100 fs. The ultrahigh vacuum system, equipped with evaporators, a low energy electron diffraction system and an Auger spectrometer, grants the possibility to grow and characterize thin films in situ. The electron energy analyzer is a time-of-flight spectrometer with a multianode detector allowing high count rates. The performance of the whole experimental setup is investigated on Cu(100), Cu(111), and Ag(111) single crystals.

    Abstract. The dynamics of electrons in image-potential states has been studied by means of time- and energy-resolved two-photon photoemission. The loss of coherence in quantum-beat spectroscopy shows directly the influence of pure dephasing which can be determined also from the difference...
