We demonstrate the addition of depth resolution to the usual two-dimensional images in photoelectron emission microscopy (PEEM), with application to a square array of circular magnetic Co microdots. The method is based on excitation with soft x-ray standing-waves generated by Bragg reflection from a multilayer mirror substrate. Standing wave is moved vertically through sample simply by varying the photon energy around the Bragg condition. Depth-resolved PEEM images were obtained for all of the observed elements. Photoemission intensities as functions of photon energy were compared to x-ray optical calculations in order to quantitatively derive the depth-resolved film structure of the sample.

    We report that the performance of indium tin oxide/molybdenum oxide/fullerene (ITO/MoOx/C60) photovoltaic cells is highly sensitive to the method of depositing MoOx film. The highest open-circuit voltage and short-circuit current are obtained using thermally evaporated MoOx. In contrast,...

    We present an angle-resolved photoemission study of a ternary phase change material, namely Ge2Sb2Te5, epitaxially grown on Si(111) in the metastable cubic phase. The observed upper bulk valence band shows a minimum at [formula] being 0.3 eV below the Fermi level EF and a circular Fermi contour...

    In situ postgrowth annealing of (Ga,Mn)As layers under As capping is adequate for achieving high Curie temperatures (TC) in a similar way as ex situ annealing in air or in N2 atmosphere practiced earlier. Thus, the first efforts give an increase of TC from 68 to 145 K after 2 h annealing at 180...

    The magnetic domain wall width of T-shaped permalloy structures has been measured using a photoemission electron microscope and x-ray magnetic dichroism. The results are compared to micromagnetic simulations. The shape of the structures allows us to analyze 90° Néel walls. We find a...

    We report on the direct mapping of electron transfer in the momentum space of bulk MoS2 by means of time- and angle-resolved two-photon photoemission with a high-harmonic probe.

    The effect of a self-assembled organized organic monolayer on the two-photon photoemission from semiconductor substrates was investigated. It has been found that the monolayer affects the relative yield of photoelectrons emitted by p-polarized versus s-polarized light. In addition, the monolayer...
