Recent theoretical work has suggested the possibility of determining chemisorption bond geometry by the use of uv photoemission. This possibility is being investigated experimentally in an apparatus developed at NBS. The apparatus is described, and preliminary results are presented which show energy distributions as a function of emission angle for electrons photoemitted from W(100), both clean and with adsorbed oxygen. The results obtained at hv = 21.2 eV for several emission angles indicate substantial angular dependence of the photoelectron distributions, not only for the clean (100) surface, but also, more dramatically, with an oxygen adlayer.
