Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation
Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

Begun in 1973, the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) is the premier international NDE meeting designed to provide an interface between research and early engineering through the presentation of current ideas and results focused on facilitating a rapid transfer to engineering development.

This site provides free, public access to papers presented at the annual QNDE conference between 1983 and 1999, and abstracts for papers presented at the conference since 2001.

Abstract

The theory of photoemission from metals is still in the state of development. There are relatively few rigorous calculations of photoemission spectra from metals. Much of the work which is being done currently is addressed to the question of the role of many-body interactions in this type of problem, and it is, indeed, a theoretical question on ideal metal surfaces of considerable complexity. The introduction of surface roughness requires a model theory, and it requires some model concept. Now, the thing I am going to address myself to in this talk is to the role of surface plasmons in enhancing the photoemission of metals.
