Abstract

A new spectroscopic technique is proposed as a means of determining the energy and momentum of adsorbed atoms and molecules. The method, abbreviated to ASPID (adsorption spectroscopy by polariton-induced desorption), uses surface phonon polaritons (SPPs) to desorb atoms. Because one may create nearly-monoenergetic SPPs, the binding energy range is determined directly from the spectrum of final energies. A kinematical analysis may be used to analyze adatom momenta, and hence band structures. The angular distribution of the SPP-desorbed atoms may be used to monitor adsorbed-film temperature. We provide an estimate of the SPP desorption rate, and conclude that the proposed experiment is feasible.
