An aluminum film with a thickness of 1500Å has been used as a filter for the He Iα resonance line (21.2182eV) from a microwave-driven high-flux discharging lamp to reduce the degradation of sample surfaces during photoemission spectroscopy (PES) measurements. A marked increase in the lifetime of sample surfaces, which overcomes a ∼90% intensity reduction, has been observed. The thin-film filter, if combined with a high-flux discharging lamp, provides clean vacuum ultraviolet lights for reliable PES measurements with an ultrahigh resolution.
