Paper Abstract

Femtosecond time resolved two photon photoemission and above- threshold photoemission (ATP) have been used to characterize the dynamics of photoexcited electrons at single crystal Cu surfaces. The two photon photoemission studies measure nonradiative relaxation pathways of electrons near the surface, and the ATP studies demonstrate that photoemission occurs even when using light that is far below the work function. These studies provide important information regarding the extent and duration of the interaction of photoexcited electrons with surface adsorbates.
