    Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy with synchrotron radiation has been used to study the adsorption of CO on a NbC(111) surface at 80 K. CO is adsorbed molecularly on the NbC(111) surface. Binding energies of the CO valence levels are in good agreement with previously published results...

    Absorption spectra of CH[sub 2]CO and CD[sub 2]CO in the region 120-220 nm were recorded with a continuously tunable light source of synchrotron radiation. Our spectra show improved sensitivity and resolution with no interference from continuous absorptions reported previously. Transitions to...

    The interaction of Ce with Si (100) surfaces has been studied qualitatively by photoemission with synchrotron radiation. For coverages of a few monolayers the reaction yields a disordered phase with a wide variation of Si-Ce coordinations which do not depend on the distance from the surface. For...
