1.1 Expansion of electron spectroscopy
Bound electrons are absolutely essential components of any condensed matter system.
They are not only required for its existence due to the local bonding afforded by the elec-
trons, but are also essential for the chemical, physical, vibrational, and transport properties
of a material. Especially interesting phenomena, such as magnetism, emerge from the spin
of the bound electrons. Measuring, scrutinizing, tweaking, and otherwise probing a system's
electronic structure through a wide array of electron spectroscopies have proven fruitful in
furthering our understanding of materials and their electrons. In the solid state, electron
spectroscopies do not only aid in exploring bulk electronic behavior, but due to their inher-
ent surface sensitivity are particularly well suited for studying surface physics. The current
trend in material technology towards ever decreasing dimensions with advancements in, for
example, thin films and nanoparticles, enhances the importance of surfaces. The popularity
of electron spectroscopies has likewise surged. Interest in the magnetic properties and spin
Here’s what’s next.
