Abstract

This chapter discusses the electronic structure of metals such as copper (Cu) and silver (Ag). It tabulates binding energy, effective mass, and FWHM values for Cu, and presents graphical solutions for the n = 0 surface states and/or resonances associated with the X gap on Cu(001) and Cu(110). A schematic representation of the potential in the vicinity of the surface of Cu is also shown. Effective masses and lifetimes of IS’s at Cu and nickel (Ni) surfaces have been calculated using a many-body self-energy formalism. Variation of the effective mass and lifetime broadening with the parameter of the wavefunction for Cu and Ni are provided in a table. Comparison of experimental and theoretical surface state binding energies, comparison of experimental and theoretical values of the effective mass for the Cu surface state band dispersions, and comparison of experimental and theoretical surface state binding energies are also tabulated. Illustrations also include projected band structures, total energy and electronic structure calculated for fcc and bcc Ag bulk and surfaces, energy dispersion relation for the Ag(111) surface state, and photoemission intensity of the Ag surface state as a function of the photon energy. Final state energies, and experimental and theoretical dispersion relations for Ag (111) are finally figured out.
