Paper Abstract

Photoemission with characteristic x-ray and synchrotron radiation has shown that the first atomic layers of the noble metals have electronic properties which differ from those of the bulk. The d bands are narrowed at the surface, resulting in reduced s-d hybridiza-tion and a transfer of charge from s- into d-states. These changes result in a decrease in the core electron binding energies at the surface which have been determined for all three metals.
