  • Physics related to a wide class of Photon-in Photon-out experiments including Absorption, Reflectivity, Diffuse scattering, Luminescence and Fluorescence or radiation-matter interaction[some experimental arrangements and results, mainly in connection with the BEAR beamline at Elettrahttp://new.tasc.infm.it/research/bear/]Systems
  • bulk materials the whole space is occupied by matter
  • Surfaces  matter occupies a semi-space, properties of the vacuum matter interface on top of a semi-infinite bulk
  • Interfaces  transition region between two different semi-infinite materials
  • Information [see mainly following lectures]
  • Electronic properties full and empty states, valence and core states, localized and delocalized states
  • Local atomic geometry /Morphology electronic states – atomic geometry different faces of the same coin
  • Energy range Visible, Vacuum Ultraviolet, Soft X-rays)Synchrotron and laboratory sources/LABConceptually Shining light on a system, detecting the products and measuring effects of this interactionThis can be done by Laboratory sources They cover in principle the whole energy range nowadays covered by synchrotrons (J.A.R.Samson Techniques of vacuum ultraviolet spectroscopy)
  • Incandescent sources
  • Gas discharge
  • X-ray e- bombardment line emission
  • Bremsstrahlung continuous emission sources
  • Higher harmonic source
  • Synchrotron and laboratory sources / Synchrotron
  • Some well known features
  • Collimation
  • Intrinsic linear and circular polarization
  • Time structure (typically 01-1 ns length, 1 MHz-05GHz repetition rate)
  • Continuous spectrum, high energy  access to core levels
  • Reliable calculability of absolute intensity
  • Emission in clean vacuum, no gas or sputtered materials
  • High brilliance unprecedented energy resolution
  • High brilliance  small spot  Spectromicroscopy
  • “The one important complication of synchrotron source is, however, that while laboratory sources are small appendices to the monochromators, in a synchrotron radiation set-up the measuring devices becomes a small appendices to the light source. It is therefore recommendable to make use of synchrotron radiation only when its advantages are really needed.” C.Kunz, In Optical properties of solids New developments, Ed.B.O.Seraphin, North Holland, 1976Radiation-Matter Interaction  Polarization and current induction in E.M. fieldMatter polarizes in presence of an electric field Result is the establishment in the medium of an electric field function of both external and polarization chargesMatter polarizes in presence of a magnetic field Result is the establishment in the medium of a magnetic field function of both external and polarization currentsThe presence of fields induce currents
