METIS 1000

Next Generation TOF Analyzer for Momentum Microscopy

The METIS 1000 is the next generation TOF spectrometer fror ARPES and momentum microscopy. If a pules light source is available, the METIS 1000 is the intrument of choise. It allows aquisition of two in plane k-vectors against the kinetic electron energy in one shot. The lens system is optimized for high momentum resolution and aquired electrons from the complete jhalf space above the sample, yielding ultimate acceptance angles. The lens design directly shows the k-space on the detector, hence, no conversion from angular space into real space is needed. Integrated deflectors in the microscopy lens allow to move the aear of interest without moving the sample and integrated apertures can be used for µ-ARPES or contracst enhancement in PEEM.

The native repition rate of the detector is 5-8 MHz. With a special frquency splitter is is possible to boost the acceptable repition rate up to 100 MHz.

  1. (2017) Direct 3D mapping of the Fermi surface and Fermi velocity

    We performed a full mapping of the bulk electronic structure including the Fermi surface and Fermi-velocity distribution vF(kF) of tungsten. The 4D spectral function ρ(EB; k) in the entire bulk Brillouin zone and 6 eV binding-energy (EB) interval was acquired in ∼3 h thanks to a new multidimensional photoemission data-recording technique (combining full-field k-microscopy with time-of-flight parallel energy recording) and the high brilliance of the soft X-rays used. A direct comparison of bulk and surface spectral functions (taken at low photon energies) reveals a time-reversal-invariant surface state in a local bandgap in the (110)-projected bulk band structure. The surface state connects hole and electron pockets that would otherwise be separated by an indirect local bandgap. We confirmed its Dirac-like spin texture by spin-filtered momentum imaging. The measured 4D data array enables extraction of the 3D dispersion of all bands, all energy isosurfaces, electron velocities, hole or electron conductivity, effective mass and inner potential by simple algorithms without approximations. The high-Z bcc metals with large spin–orbit-induced bandgaps are discussed as candidates for topologically non-trivial surface states.
