Title: UPS and EELS study of zirconium oxidation

Abstract

The electronic structures of metallic zirconium, zirconium oxide, and zirconium surfaces with intermediate degrees of oxidation have been studied by photoemission spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation and by electron energy loss spectroscopy. Both methods are used to analyze the same samples in one experimental cycle. Some specific features of the electronic structures that had not been detected earlier are revealed. The experimental data obtained are explained using the first-principles calculations of the electronic states of hcp metallic zirconium and cubic or monoclinic zirconia. The dielectric function and the electron-energy-loss function are calculated for comparison with the experimental data. Despite certain quantitative differences, the experimental and calculated data on the electronic structures of zirconium and its oxide are in good qualitative agreement.
