Title: Magnetron-based source of neutral metal vapors for photoelectron spectroscopy

Abstract

The construction of a magnetron-based source for neutral metal vapors is presented. The first photoelectron spectroscopy experiments with the source using synchrotron radiation at MAX-lab, Sweden are described. Photoelectron spectra of atomic copper, silver, and nickel are reported with an 80 meV resolution for Cu and Ag, previously not achieved in experiments using synchrotron light.

  • A simple and cost effective nanocluster ion source for the deposition of size selected metal nanocluster has been developed based on the dc magnetron discharge (including pulsed dc discharge). The most important and interesting feature of this cluster source is that it is working at room temperature, cooled by chilled water during the experiment. There is no extraction unit in this device and the cluster streams flow only due to the pressure gradient from source chamber to substrate via quadrupole mass filter. It has provision of multiple substrate holders in the deposition chamber, which can be controlled manually. The facilitymore » consists of quadrupole mass filter (QMF 200), which can select masses in the range of 2-125 000 atoms depending on the target materials, with a constant mass resolution (M/{Delta}M{approx}25). The dc magnetron discharge at a power of about 130 W with Ar as feed/buffer gas was used to produce the Cu nanocluster in an aggregation tube and deposited on Si (100) wafer temperature.« less
  • A new magnetron based gas-aggregation source for continuous production of metal nanoclusters has been built and coupled to a double time-of-flight mass spectrometer system. The capability of the source to produce neutral, positive, and negative nanoclusters within one production cycle, particularly under the same optimized experimental conditions, has been tested. The source performs steadily for continuous long operations and has high beam intensity that would be preferable for size selective measurements in gas phase on individual nanoclusters. This paper describes on the instrumentation of the integrated complete experimental setup for gas-phase measurement on nanoclusters including the source. It reports onmore » the production of copper nanoclusters using the source. Mass abundances of neutral and charged clusters have been investigated and the results are discussed with respect to reported results using various other types of sources. The experimental isotopic distributions of {sup 63}Cu versus {sup 65}Cu within individual cluster mass peaks have been derived and compared to corresponding theoretical profiles.« less
  • A laser-based tabletop approach to femtosecond time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy with photons in the vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) energy range is described. The femtosecond VUV pulses are produced by high-order harmonic generation (HHG) of an amplified femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser system. Two generations of the same setup and results from photoelectron spectroscopy in the gas phase are discussed. In both generations, a toroidal grating monochromator was used to select one harmonic in the photon energy range of 20-30 eV. The first generation of the setup was used to perform photoelectron spectroscopy in the gas phase to determine the bandwidth of the source. We findmore » that our HHG source has a bandwidth of 140 {+-} 40 meV. The second and current generation is optimized for femtosecond pump-probe photoelectron spectroscopy with high flux and a small spot size at the sample of the femtosecond probe pulses. The VUV radiation is focused into the interaction region with a toroidal mirror to a spot smaller than 100 x 100 {mu}m{sup 2} and the flux amounts to 10{sup 10} photons/s at the sample at a repetition rate of 1 kHz. The duration of the monochromatized VUV pulses is determined to be 120 fs resulting in an overall pump-probe time resolution of 135 {+-} 5 fs. We show how this setup can be used to map the transient valence electronic structure in molecular dissociation.« less
  • A new liquid microjet endstation designed for ultraviolet (UPS) and X-ray (XPS) photoelectron, and partial electron yield X-ray absorption (XAS) spectroscopies at the Swiss Light Source is presented. The new endstation, which is based on a Scienta HiPP-2 R4000 electron spectrometer, is the first liquid microjet endstation capable of operating in vacuum and in ambient pressures up to the equilibrium vapor pressure of liquid water at room temperature. In addition, the Scienta HiPP-2 R4000 energy analyzer of this new endstation allows for XPS measurements up to 7000 eV electron kinetic energy that will enable electronic structure measurements of bulk solutionsmore » and buried interfaces from liquid microjet samples. The endstation is designed to operate at the soft X-ray SIM beamline and at the tender X-ray Phoenix beamline. The endstation can also be operated using a Scienta 5 K ultraviolet helium lamp for dedicated UPS measurements at the vapor-liquid interface using either He I or He II ╬▒ lines. The design concept, first results from UPS, soft X-ray XPS, and partial electron yield XAS measurements, and an outlook to the potential of this endstation are presented.« less
  • The He(I) photoelectron spectra of InCl, InBr, and InI are presented. A general description of bonding in all Group III monohalides is given on the basis of these new data, earlier data on thallium monohalides, ab initio calculations on BF, AlCl, and GaCl, and semiempirical calculations on all of the Group III monohalides. It is found that a molecular orbital localized on the electronegative atom in an ionic diatomic molecule is appropriately classified as ''bonding''; whereas a molecular orbital localized on the positive ion has an ''antibonding'' character. This classification is qualitatively different from that used to discuss covalently boundmore » molecules.« less
