Kai M. Siegbahn
Date: Around 1993
I would like to find any information on Kai M. Siegbahn and his
work with the high-resolution electron spectroscopy. He won the Nobel Prize
for it in 1981.
I do not have any reasonable information of this sort. You would
be best served to go to the library and get a copy of his Nobel lecture.
These are published in a number of places. That would tell you about his
work. Kai developed x-ray photo-emission, a great technique to study the
electronic structure of materials. the technique currently has a resolution
of less than 0.1 eV. Many spin-off techniques have also been developed since
then which also study unoccupied bands. Kai is Swedish, they needed a Prize.
