Main Applications of ARPES today?

  1. Jan 13, 2010 #1
    I´m preparing a paper on ARPES and wanted ask what the main applications of ARPES are nowadays?

    I allready understand that high temperature superconductors are one main region of interest but what else ?

    ARPES technique is used to obtain the band structure of a material. This is crucial because the band structure practically reveals almost ALL of the properties of the material that are within the first few eV.

    You should consult various photoemission texts as references, such as Hufner's "Photoelectron Spectroscopy" (springer).
