Alignment of valence photoemission, x-ray absorption, and substrate density of states for an adsorbate on a semiconductor surface

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A method for determining the placement of x-ray absorption data into an experimental density of states for an adsorbate-semiconductor system is motivated and illustrated with the cases of bi-isonicotinic acid, isonicotinic acid, and benzoic acid on rutile TiO2(110). Special attention is paid to experimental aspects, as well as the role of Z+1 effects and the choice of reference level.
