13 August 1993 Surface-enhanced photoionization effect
Author Affiliations +
A new effect concerning the interaction of electromagnetic waves with surfaces is represented. It was observed that when organic molecules, like naphthalene and aniline, were absorbed on a metal surface, enhanced photoemission signals were detected. The signal as a function of the wavelength of the illuminated light reflected the absorption spectrum of the absorbent. This effect was called the surface-enhanced photoionization.
