Accurate free atom-solid binding energy shifts for Au and Ag

Aksela, S.; Kantia, T.; Patanen, M.; Makinen, A.; Urpelainen, Samuli LU and Aksela, H. (2012) In Journal of Electron Spectroscopy and Related Phenomena 185(8-9). p.273-277
Abstract
Binding energy shifts between atomic and solid states have been observed with improved accuracy for All 4f and Ag 3d core levels applying a simultaneous measurement method. Also the 3d photoelectron spectrum and binding energies of free Ag atoms have been observed for the first time. New values determined as free atom to bulk solid shifts deviate considerably from previous estimate for Au but agree reasonably well for Ag. The valence bands were also found to shift rather accurately by the same amount as the core levels. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier B.V.
