Energy resolution

The energy resolution in the various acquisition modes is: better than 0.2 eV in XPEEM; 0.15 eV in μ-XPS and 0.15 eV in μ-ARPES.

µ-XPS spectrum acquired from W(110) surface from the selected area (0.8 µm2) indicated on the LEEM image. The bulk (B) and surface (S) components of W 4f7/2 core level are identified at 64.7 and 65.4 eV Kinetic Energy, respectively. After deconvolution of the FWHM of the bulk peak, the experimental Gaussian broadening is found to be 115 meV. FoV=20 µm, hv=100 eV.


Spatial resolution

The spatial resolution is calculated for the various acquisition techniques in correspondence to the respective AC Mirror status (OFF, ON).

Resolution in k space

The Fermi surface mapping in the full cone is possible in µ-ARPES. The first Brillouin zone is acquired from selected areas (0.89 µm2) on monolayer (blue circle on the LEEM image) and bilayer (green circle on the LEEM image) graphene allowing the extraction of the line cuts of the Dirac cones and providing a wavevector resolution better than 0.15 Å⁻¹.
