Electronic surface structure of n-ML Ag/Cu(111) and Cs/n-ML Ag/Cu(111) as investigated by 2PPE and STS
We investigated the electronic structure of epitaxially grown silver films on Cu(111) with and without adsorption of cesium by means of scanning tunneling spectroscopy and two-photon photoemission. This system has been chosen as a model system to engineer and measure the dynamics of charge-transfer processes between an adsorbate and a heterogeneous substrate. Special emphasis has been laid on the investigation of the energy shift of the Shockley-type surface state and an excited cesium resonance as a function of Ag film thickness. For the cesium resonance we observe an increase in line width with increasing layer thickness.
