ABSTRACT
Energy-band discontinuities were measured for hydrogenated amorphous silicon and crystalline silicon heterojunctions by internal photoemission. The measurement was performed both for the conduction-band side and for the valence-band side, and the conduction-band discontinuity and the valence-band discontinuity were estimated to be 0.09 and 0.71 eV, respectively. This result indicates that the band discontinuity mainly exists at the valence-band side.

    Electronic structures of organic/organic (O/O) heterojunctions have been studied by photoemission spectroscopy. We showed that vacuum level alignment is only valid for certain O/O heterojunctions rather than a general rule for organic junctions. The mode of energy level alignment is found to...

    Angle-resolved photoemission is used to determine the energy bands of permalloy (Ni[sub 0.8]Fe[sub 0.2]) and compare them to Ni, Co, and Cu. The energy and momentum resolution (approx. 0.01 eV and approx. 0.01 Ã…-1) is high enough to resolve the magnetically split bands at the Fermi level...

    The electron energy band alignment at the Si/HfO[sub 2] interfaces with different interlayers (Si[sub 3]N[sub 4], SiON, and SiO[sub 2]) is directly determined using internal photoemission of electrons and holes from Si into the Hf oxide. Irrespective of the interlayer type, the energy barrier...
