Prospects and Limitations of Electronic Structure Imaging by Angle Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy

International Focus Workshop
25 - 27 April 2016

Recent developments in orbital imaging by Angle Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy (ARPES) have provided fascinating insight into molecular materials. This workshop will review the present state-of-the-art in this field, addressing both experimental and theoretical questions, and explore future perspectives.

Topics include

  • Limits of the plane wave final state assumption and understanding of final state effects in theory and experiment
  • Advances in theory, such as correlated time-dependent simulations, Green’s functions, e.g. GW, and beyond
  • Phase retrieval and reconstruction of orbitals in real space
  • Energy dependent experiments and 3D tomography
  • New experimental capabilities, such as high harmonics generation and ARPES experiments with time resolution
