MeSH Heading
Photoelectron Spectroscopy
Tree Number(s)
E05.196.867.618
Unique ID
D056951
RDF Unique Identifier

Scope Note
The study of the energy of electrons ejected from matter by the photoelectric effect, i.e., as a direct result of absorption of energy from electromagnetic radiation. As the energies of the electrons are characteristic of a specific element, the measurement of the energy of these electrons is a technique used to determine the chemical composition of surfaces.
