Nonlinear and time-resolved studies of metal surfaces using subpicosecond photoemission

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Electron heating in metals by ultrashort laser pulses has been intensively investigated in recent years.1,2 However, no direct measurements of the electron energy distribution function in laser-heated metals have been reported so far. We have used ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy to directly obtain the energy distribution function with 500-fs time resolution. We confirm that on this time scale, the distribution is well described by a Fermi-Dirac function; thus we directly measure the time dependence of the electron temperature.
