|Title:||Relaxation Energies in Chemisorption Spectroscopy|
|Published:||January 01, 1975|
|Abstract:||The upward shift in atomic energy levels (or decrease in electron binding energies) which occurs upon sorption of an atom on a metal surface due to polarization of the valence band electrons, is considered. The polarization shift or extra-atomic relaxation energy is treated within the framework established by Hedin, Johansson, and Lundqvist and the results are related to image potential shifts which have been previously discussed in chemisorption theories.|
