Mehmet B. Yilmaz, Jerry I. Dadap, Kevin R. Knox, Nader Zaki, Zhaofeng Hao, Peter D. Johnson, Richard M. Osgood, Jr.,” Photoemission band mapping with a tunable femtosecond source using nonequilibrium absorption resonances.” Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology A, 30(4), p. 041403-7 (2012)

Cover Text:

The cover shows resonant angle-resolved two-photon photoemission (2PPE) from Cu(775) surface for an incident photon energy of 4.48 eV. The green dotted and solid blue curves are the n = 0 surface-state and n = 1 image-state band dispersions. The normalized photoemission signal intensity corresponding to solid blue curve as a function of momentum is plotted in the lower pannel. Inset: The calculated 2PPE spectra.

Our paper has been selected as the winner of the Maiman Student Paper Competition. Jeffrey Driscoll has been selected as the 2012 Maiman Outstanding Student Paper Competition First Prize Winner!
