Circularly Polarized VUV Radiation up to 40 eV Photon Energies for Spin Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy Studies

  • Ulrich Heinzmann


For many applications in spin resolved photoelectron spectroscopy circularly polarized radiation is required because the spin-polarization transfer from “spin polarized photons” onto spin polarized photoelectrons is the matter of interest. In atomic and molecular photoionization a lot of studies are hampered by the fact that most atoms and molecules have their ionization thresholds in the vuv, where conventional methods for producing circularly polarized radiation break down. There are different ways of obtaining circularly polarized vuv radiation.
