These limitations have severely restricted the range of samples and phenomena that can be studied with ultrafast tr-ARPES.
At Stony Brook, we have constructed a next-generation tr-ARPES instrument that addresses this data-rate challenge. We realize a high repetition rate ultrashort-pulse XUV light source using frequency comb methods and the technique of cavity-enhanced high harmonic generation CE-HHG. With a relatively simple and compact setup, the light source delivers to the sample >10 photons/s in well-isolated harmonics over a broad photon energy tuning range of 18-37 eV with a spot size of 58 × 100 μm [1-3]. The high repetition rate enables space-charge-free tr-ARPES experiments with nano-Ampere sample currents. From photoelectron spectroscopy data, we place conservative upper limits on the XUV pulse duration and photon-energy bandwidth of 93 fs and 65 meV, respectively. The light source has now been integrated with a time-of-flight momentum microscope , enabling efficient, parallel, momentum-resolved detection of the full 2π emission hemisphere from the surface under study. I will discuss preliminary results with this new instrument, ongoing tr-ARPES experiments, and also continuing development of the instrument. In particular, I will focus on tr-ARPES measurements from micron-scale sample areas and tr-ARPES measurements with perturbative pump excitation to study the intrinsic quasi-particle dynamics of materials.
